The blue club, which maintains its position of not playing without followers, is already thinking of alternatives to try to wink at its fans.

The three ideas are under evaluation, pending different scenarios. The first is to create a sort of drive-in on the outskirts of the Tartiere to which the members can go and follow, at the same time as they play, the league clash, always inside the cars.Another possibility is to screen print the name of the team’s subscribers on a commemorative shirt. although it would not be possible for the remaining 11 days since new clothes cannot be used.

“There are always speculations but honestly my idea is very clear, the only option that interests me is to continue in Barcelona, I am very safe and calm. I feel very good here and I also thank the club and the coaching staff for their trust. That is another reason more to be totally clear that my only desire is to continue.The supposed interest of big clubs is always a compliment to anyone and a positive sign, but my mind is only on playing here for many years. During the past few weeks, Arthur Melo has been the subject of many rumors of a possible transfer. However, the Brazilian soccer player’s idea of Barcelona is to stay in the Catalan club for as long as possible, and that is why He has issued a statement explaining that although he is flattered to arouse the interest of other teams, he does not think of leaving Barcelona. Barça is where I have always wanted to be and I want to be a Catalan player for a long time, above all other questions. Every day I feel more comfortable and well here, in the team, in the club and in the city. I also love both the people and the culture here and I have a lot of support from the fans.I am 100% focused on working and that we return to play when possible because I really want to continue growing here and fight for more blaugrana titles. “ During the last weeks there has been speculation about the possibility that he will leave to play in Serie A and although Inter Milan’s option was not long ruled out, there was still talk of Juventus’ interest. However, the Italian club does not now have enough liquidity to undertake such an operation, at least not without parting with one of its figures as a currency. The only way that seems possible is the exchange with the Serbian midfielder Miralem Pjanic, Although considering that Arthur’s will is to succeed in Barcelona, it does not seem possible that Barcelona and Juventus are going to close the deal. 8
