Arthur Melo was the player chosen by the FC Barcelona to occupy the centre of the field after the course of Andrés Iniesta, still waiting for another mediocentro. To his 21 years, the crack of the Guild has dazzled in the Brazilian championship thanks to his talent and to his capacity of control in the medullary, something very necessary in the Barça.

Without safe values in the quarry in the last years and waiting for Carles Aleñá that has lesionado of gravity, the arrival of Arthur Melo can suppose a blow of cool air for the team. And more taking into account his profile futbolístico of mediocentro pure organiser, able to build the game from backwards and to deploy .

The signing of Philippe Coutinho goes more directed to a man of three chambers to forward, a mediapunta of enormous technical quality that risks with the pass and that arrives with ease to the rival area. The profile of Arthur is distinct and much more similar to the of Xavi: a player with a glove in his boot that practically does not lose balloons.

The data like this reflect it: the mediocentro right-handed of the Guild has a descomunal percentage of tarpaulin in the passes completed properly with 94,8% of tarpaulin. A figure despampanante that shows the security that contributes Arthur when the balloon is in his feet. To his 21 years, knows to decide how and when give a pass with a precision of surgeon.

His arrival, important for the Barça

The signing of Arthur will be very important for the FC Barcelona if it achieves to surrender to the level that is offering in Brazil. The tremenda quality of this mediocentro will be a carboy of oxygen for players like Ivan Rakitic or Sergio Busquets, very overloaded of parties in the centre of the field.

Arthur will have to adapt to the style of game of the Barça, but the big advantage that has is his superlativa technical quality. A talent with which has to be born , something that will do that it have to adapt to the tactical concepts and to the dynamics of game. The jump to the European football will be hard, but Arthur has qualities to triumph as Barcelona.
