Manchester City is interested in Arthur Melo, and they are willing to swap one of their midfielders for the Brazilian, according to a report.
Arthur has been struggling at Juventus since he joined the club in 2020.
They are now willing to offload him, but not many clubs have shown an interest in him because he is injury-prone.
The Brazilian was recently linked with a move to Valencia on loan for the rest of the season.
However, Calciomercato.it reports that Pep Guardiola wants to work with him and has requested that City adds him to his squad.
The Spanish manager is prepared to give up Ilkay Gundogan to make the move happen, and he will send the German to Juve in a swap deal.
Juve FC Says
Arthur has been unsuited to our system, and his many injury problems make him one of the worst buys we have made.
Offloading him should be our priority, and Gundogan has made more impact at City than he will ever make for us.
The German will bring extra creativity to our team, and he knows how to score very important goals. A player with that in his locker can help us to win more matches.
do this now,now,now!
City have zero interest in Melo. Ilkay will spend his last year of his contract at City before returning to Dortmund to replace Bellingham who’ll be joining city in 2023.
In terms of playing style and effectiveness, this is really good offer, not sure on financial side though.
Guindogan is becoming Arthur 2.0, but older
“Offloading him should be our priority, and Gundogan has made more impact at City than he will ever make for us.”
I think that JUVE FC should engage the services of an English language tutor. This does NOT make any sense.
It means that GUNDOGGAN will not perform as well at JUVE FC as he has done at CITY.
LEARN how to express yourselves, JUVE FC.
Well this sounds very interesting…. Arthur is obviously not in the plans and gundogan is quite a player even if recently he’s been a little cold … he played a big role in the ucl run for Man City not long ago . This might be good
We need fresh legs not some old dusty legs who would give us a one season performance…
Even at ilkay’s decline he’s still better than melo.
