Last season, Arthur Melo showed a good adaptation to FC Barcelona, but without risking too much in his plays. This course is being decisive
In summer of 2018, Arthur Melo arrived to the FC Barcelona like one of the footballers of 'profile Xavi' that they could help to the Barcelona team to keep the bet by a style of possession from a centre of the creative field. The Brazilian began marvelling by his talent, but did not finish to win a place like fixed and, when it was headline, was used to to be substituted.
From the club and the technical body, asked him a step forward to the Brazilian. The talent always had it, but this season has experienced a metamorphosis that no only has done that it leave to be an usual of the replacements, but also that his place in the eleven headline was a fixed bet of the Txingurri split after party.
Arthur arrived of Brazil like a mediocentro positional, but in the Camp Nou had him reserved the role of interior, that requires also that the midfield player incorporate to the attack. In his first year, Arthur limited to be a player of support for the exit of the balloon from defensive zone, but is experiencing a very interesting evolution.
It asked him a step forward and is giving it. Now, the Brazilian no longer is only a help for the circulation of the balloon in the centre of the field, but also a footballer that begins to be determinant in attack participating directly in the goals of the team. In fact, already it carries two so many marked and three assistances, with which served him to Messi against the Slavia.
The offensive data of Arthur have grown exponencialmente, and more taking into account that the Brazilian, the past season, did not achieve to mark neither an alone goal and only gave an assistance. In spite of that the statistics in case alone already are an irrefutable proof of the step forward of the international by the 'canarinha', the feelings that leaves when seeing him play are entirely distinct.
The physical appearance, determinant
Arthur arrived from Brazil endorsed by his enormous technical quality, but also very accustomed to the style of Brazilian game, less demanding physically. When arriving to the Barça, did not take in marvelling by his qualities, but also left to the discovered that physically it was underneath of what is necessary to triumph. Now it is much stronger physically and covers much more field, something that benefits him to be transcendental in attack.
