Something happens with Arthur Melo. The Brazilian midfield player began the season being intocable for Ernesto Valverde, forming couple of interiors with Frenkie of Jong and being accompanied both by players like Sergio Busquets or Arturo Vidal. Nevertheless, the Brazilian has remained went in two of the three last announcements.

The news jumped this Monday in the new list: the Txingurri had gone back to forget of him to play against the Slavia Prague in the Camp Nou. A key party to strengthen the leadership in the group of Champions League that required of the presence of the best, but that will not have the presence of Arthur to the that maybe want to give him a touch of attention.

It does a week, his absence against the Real Valladolid understood like a normal rotation to deliver minutes of face to a dense calendar. But, after playing little more than an hour against the Raise in LaLiga​ in a frankly bad party of the team in general and of the own Arthur in particular, can deduce that Valverde wants to give him a touch to the Brazilian.

A situation a so much odd and maybe inimaginable at the beginning of campaign. Arthur began the season giving a big performance and in a physical state visibly upper to the of the past season, something that allowed him hold 90 minutes without problem. With the step of the parties, however, has gone seeing to the less fine Brazilian and more fatigado.

Of course, because of the enormous competition that there is in the centre of the field of the FC Barcelona, to Arthur has happened him invoices his ineffectiveness in the last meetings. In fact, against the Slavia, Valverde opted by Carles Aleñá by in front of the Brazilian, something surprising taking into account the little ball that the Txingurri has given him to the canterano from the duel of Saint Mamés.

The best Arthur can be headline

If Arthur is to his best level, there are not doubts: it has to play. But the irregularity is a problem that the Brazilian carries dragging since it arrived to the Camp Nou and is an appearance in which it has to work. The past campaign, won the place during some months, but finish it losing in profit of Arturo Vidal. Something that seems that it can repeat.
