The Highest-Paid Juve Stars After Arthur Transfer

With Juventus announcing their signing of Arthur Melo on Monday, the FC Barcelona midfielder will reportedly triple his salary once he completes his move, but where will he rank among Juve's highest-paid stars?

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.
