Barcelona Midfielder Arthur: “It’s A Source Of Pride To Be Linked With A Great Club Like Inter”
Barcelona midfielder Arthur discussed Inter’s interest in him in an interview in today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
“For any player, it is a source of pride that his name is linked with a club as important and known worldwide as Inter, a club with a great coach and an impressive squad.”
The 23-year-old Brazilian, who is contracted to the Blaugrana until 2024, revealed that he is only thinking about the Catalan club and already has a plan for his future.
“But that said, the thoughts that I have in my mind now are only for Barcelona. I feel very good both in the team and in the city and honestly I continue to see myself playing for the Blaugrana for many years.”
Inter are looking to strengthen their midfield in the upcoming summer transfer window, with Arthur being one of many options the Nerazzurri are considering. The Milanese club’s top choice is Arthur’s teammate, Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal. Either player could be involved in the deal for Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez.
Arthur has made 23 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1362 minutes. In that time, he has scored four goals and provided four assists. The 23-year-old has struggled with pelvis injuries this season and has only played the full 90 minutes of a match in the league four times.
