The Italian giants and their LaLiga counterparts announced a massive swap involving Arthur and Miralem Pjanic on Monday.
Juve confirmed they will pay a fee of €72 million (R1.4 billion) plus €10 million (R194 million) in add-ons for the 23-year-old, while they will receive €60 million (R1.2 billion) plus another €5 million (R97 million) in performance-based bonuses from Barcelona for Pjanic.
It is believed, though, that Arthur did not initially want to join the Serie A leaders, and could only be convinced to make the switch with a massive salary increase.
According to various reports, the Brazilian has put pen to paper on a five-year deal that will see him pocket €5.5 million (R107 million) a season, which is three times what he was understood to be earning at the Camp Nou.
However, he will be receiving €2 million (R39 million) less than what Pjanic was getting in Italy, and is only in 10th position among Juve's top-earning stars.
Cristiano Ronaldo remains unchallenged at the top, receiving €31 million (R602 million) a year, €23 million (R447 million) more than second-placed Matthijs de Ligt gets – you can see the Bianconeri's top earners in the gallery above!
