The Copa America 2019, celebrated this same summer, did that a lot of footballers had to lengthen his season to help to his national selections and Arthur Melo was one of them. The Brazilian, like the rest of international Latin American, joined to the discipline of the FC Barcelona later that the rest, by what could not do the pre-season to the complete.

Of course, his process of physical preparation has lengthened more than the one of some of his mates and could not have prominence in the inaugural party of LaLiga Santander that the ones of Ernesto Valverde played in Saint Mamés against the Athletic Club and in which the culés punctured with a defeat after a golazo of Aritz Aduriz.

In this duel, maybe missed to a footballer like the Brazilian at the side of Frenkie of Jong. Arthur is of those midfield players that ensure the pass, that lose a lot of balloons and that help to oxigenar the game. But every time it is increasing more his rhythm in the trainings and, of face to the party against the Real Betis, will be prepared for, if it does fault, go out to title.

The figure of the Brazilian can be important against the team of Rubi, that is used to to want the ball to dominate the parties.

Of course, to the mediocentro Brazilian will not cost him only with his talent to win the place in the eleven of gala. The Brazilian will have to litigate to face up to players like Frenkie of Jong, Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal or Carles Aleñá, that also want to be important. The time will say which place occupies in the diagrams of the Txingurri.
