Barcelona Have a Rival for Signature of Brazilian Youngster

Barcelona Have a Rival for Signature of Brazilian Youngster

Transfer speculation has, as we`ve covered earlier this week in a front-page article, linked Barcelona with a move for the midfielder Arthur.

Arthur, just 21-years-of age, is on the books of the Brazilian club, Gremio.

His performances, in midfield, have helped his club to their first Copa Libertadores win in twenty-two years.

With a buy-out clause in his contract of £44 million, it was thought that Barcelona had a clear run when it came to acquiring the services of the youngster who has been called up to the Brazilian squad but who has yet to make his full debut.

However, the English news source, the Mirror, is suggesting that the current Premier League champions, Chelsea, are also ready to make a swoop for the player.

If that is the case, it could be a case of whoever has the most persuasive tongue, during negotiations, will reap the rewards this youngster will bring.
