The midfielder joined us from Gremio last year in a €31m plus €9m move. Despite being his first year in Europe, it didn’t take him long to get into Barca’s starting XI.
Arthur’s 2018-19 season at Barca:
- 44 games
- 0 goals
- 2 assists
- 2 trophies (Supercopa de Espana, La Liga)
Before moving to Barca, the Brazil international had appeared in 70 games for Gremio scoring 6 goals. Moreover, he helped the team win the Copa Libertadores back in 2017.
Moreover, he already has 15 appearances for O Seleca0 and contributed to Brazil’s triumph in the 2018 Copa America. Unfortunately, he had missed the 2018 World Cup due to an injury.
