Ahead of an end of season move to Italian giants Juventus, Barcelona coach Quique Setien has claimed Arthur Melo will be ‘fully committed’ to finish the season on a high with the Spanish giants.

According to Football Italia, Arthur will move to Juventus after the current season and the reports claim only formalities are left before the official confirmation.

But the Brazilian midfielder is in the squad for the match against Atletico Madrid and Setien insists he will contribute to help Barca in the title race against Real Madrid.

“I don’t know what his mother says, but he said the same as I did,” Setien said at a press conference.

“I hope he is completely involved until the end of the season. He will be an addition if he is fully committed and will be honoured until the last day.

“He has claimed this, and I have no doubts about that. He says he will be available and in better conditions as long as I’m here to decide who will play.”

Barcelona trail Los Blancos by two points in La Liga, after sharing the spoils with Celta Vigo last weekend.
