Calendar of FC Barcelona

Arthur Melo has said "suffices" and has very clear that does not want to go back to dress the T-shirt of the FC Barcelona. The Brazilian has not presented this Monday to the proofs of the coronavirus to which were quoted all the members of the staff and right now finds in Brazil. The midfield player already has communicated him to the Barça his intention of not returning and his wish, as it aims the newspaper 'Sport', is that they terminate him his agreement.

From the club have loomed him with taking disciplinary measures for having put in rebeldía, but to the '8' does not matter him the sanction that can receive. The ex of the Guild is tired of everything and in principle does not go to retreat in his idea of not going back to enfundarse the blaugrana. Arthur is very annoying with the club by how has pushed him to abandon the Camp Nou, but especially is fed up of the deal that has given him Quique Setién since it announced his traspaso to the Juventus of Turín.

The operation oficializó on 30 June, but from some days before already took for granted his barter by Miralem Pjanic. From this moment, the trainer barcelonista left to have he practically of a day for another. In Balaídos, when it already was almost done the traspaso, only took him out 4 minutes in which it went his last meeting with the Barça. A day afterwards happened the medical recognition and later did official his sale and the arrival of the bosnio.

In what it occurred this, Arthur became 'the invisible man' for Setién, that has not gone back to take out him to the field. It did not play absolutely at all against Athletic of Madrid, Villarreal and Espanyol, did not go in in the announcement by injury in front of the Valladolid, went back to not contesting an alone minute in front of Osasuna and went back to fall of the list in Mendizorroza by a mysterious injury. In his moment said that these physical annoyances were only an excuse not to be in Vitoria, something that now earns a lot of sense.

The one of Goiana does not understand the maltreatment of the ex trainer of the Betis, that seems that it has not spoken with him in all these weeks. It feels ninguneado for having happened to the ostracism and therefore it understands that it deserves a rescission of agreement. It does not explain for the míster, in principle does not go to play in Champions League and from the club did all the possible so that it went . By all this, he considers that the best is to tighten the rope so that they leave him leave.

Arthur was ilusionado with the Champions

His attitude has changed a lot since oficializó his exit to Turín, since then his dream was to sack with the Champions League under the arm. The ex of Guild wanted to leave to the big and contribute to the success in Europe, but these last weeks has seen like Setién has turned him into a 'stunk'. Arthur thinks that did not deserve this deal and doubt that go to have options to play in front of the Naples or in the rest of the competition in case to happen. By all this, wants to go out already and goes to force the situation all what can.
