Reports: FC Barcelona Complete R438m Deal For Brazilian
Spanish giants FC Barcelona have reportedly agreed a deal worth €30 million (R438 million) for a Brazilian star.
According to AS and various other publications, Gremio midfielder Arthur has completed his transfer to the Blaugrana, but will only join up with them in January 2019.
The 21-year-old has apparently signed a five-year deal with the LaLiga leaders, and will become the second payer from Gremio to play for the Camp Nou club after legend Ronaldinho.
Earlier this week, the Brazilian club's president, Romildo Bolzan, revealed that, while no deal had yet been agreed, it was only matter of time before one was completed.
"The topic is on its way to being finished. The documents are not signed yet, but the transfer is reaching the final phase," he told Canal Fox Sports Brasil.
"100% agreement is not there yet but the situation is very positive. As happens in these cases, there could be some late alterations. The operation will be for around the numbers that have been published in recent days."
