Barcelona agree £34million option to sign Brazilian star at end of season

Reports that a deal had been agreed were denied by Arthur at the time but Gremio president Romildo Bolzan spoke last week to confirm an agreement was imminent.

The former Brazil under-17 and under-20 player was a crucial member of the Gremio team that won last year's Copa Libertadores, South America's top club competition.

Arthur will become a Barça player in July as long as the Catalan club pays the 30 million euro transfer fee to Grêmio plus an additional 9 in add-on fees.

It was not to be however, as a Cartwright floater from the left elbow clanked harmlessly up off the rim and fell to the court. Providence has taken pretty much the exact opposite route to the title game, beating both Creighton and Xavier in overtime.

In a statement published on the club website, FC Barcelona said: " FC Barcelona may exercise this right on the player's federative rights during July of 2018".

Barcelona have reached agreement with Brazilian club Gremio to sign Arthur, a 21-year-old midfielder.

The midfielder, who has been lauded for his fluid passing ability, has featured for his national side at U17 and U20 level but has yet to make his first-team debut alongside Barcelona compatriots Paulinho and Philippe Coutinho.

This is a complicated transfer as Barcelona now do not have space to register any more non-EU players following the signings of Paulinho, Philippe Coutinho and Yerry Mina.

Arthur is a Brazil Under-20 worldwide and has played 51 times for Gremio since breaking into the senior team in 2016.
