According to reports coming out from the Camp Nou in Spain, Barcelona and Brazilian midfielder, Arthur Melo is in talks with Italian giants, Inter Milan for a possible move to the Serie A next season.
A Barcelona based news newspaper, Marca reported that Inter Milan have approached the midfielder’s agent which will possibly see Melo wear the Milan jersey next season.
However, it was reported that Arthur is in favor of the move after he fell below the pecking order in the starting 11 since former Ajax midfielder, Frankie DeJong joined the team.
New coach Setien prefers the Dutch player starting ahead of the Brazilian along with Busquet and Vidal. Arthur is said to be in search of first team shirt and Inter Milan are ready to make his wish come true.
Further reports revealed that Barcelona rejected the offer out rightly as Arthur is seen as long term replacement for former club legend, Xavi whom many fans and former players have likened their style of player to be the same thing.
Order reports have it that the 23 year old midfielder might be used in the swap deal for Inter Milan striker, Lautaro Martinez, who Barcelona sees as a long term replacement for club Striker, Luis Suarez who is 34 years old.
