An hour after FC Barcelona and Juventus confirmed the transfer of Arhur Melo, both clubs have made a second announcement, confirming the transfer of Miralem Pjanic. The Bosnian has signed a contract until the summer of 2024 and he has been given a €400m release clause, which is obligated in the Spanish leagues.
Barcelona have confirmed that the club has paid €60m for Pjanic and that fee could rise to €65m with variables. With that in mind, Barcelona have made a €10m profit after confirming that Arthur Melo will be moving to Juventus for a fixed €70m price and a possible €10m extra in variables.
Pjanic joined Juventus in 2016 in a transfer from AS Roma. Since joining the Bianconeri, the Bosnian midfielder has won the Serie A title in every single season and it is expected he will be leaving the club with a fourth consecutive title. He has made a total of 171 appearances for Juventus, scoring 22 goals across all competitions for the Italian side.
