Madrid - Barcelona have confirmed the arrival of Brazilian new recruit Arthur
from Brazilian outfit Gremio on a €31 million deal.
The Spanish champions will pay an extra €9 million in bonuses in the
six-year deal struck with the Brazilians for the midfielder, full name
Arthur Henrique Ramos de Oliveira Melo.
A release clause has been set at €400 million, the Catalan giants said overnight on Monday on their website.
Barca had inked a pre-accord for the 21-year-old in March.
Arthur was a star turn with Gremio as the Porto Alegre side lifted
the Copa Libertadores, and was named as man of the match in their final
win over Argentina's Lanus.
At the Nou Camp he will notably link up with compatriot Philippe Coutinho.
