Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo has no intention of leaving the club, despite interest from both Juventus and Inter, according to a report from Spanish news outlet Marca.
The report details how the 23-year-old Brazilian midfielder has told the club that he wants to stay with them past this summer and has no interest in leaving for a different club, not even Juventus nor Inter, both of whom have been following the player with some interest for some time now.
Juventus would like to include Arthur in the deal for Bosnian midfielder Miralem Pjanic, the report continues, but the 23-year-old has categorically refused to leave Barcelona.
The Brazilian midfielder 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, missing large parts of the season after suffering from pubitis, which saw him miss seven games.
