Arthur Melo

I don't know why people are so torn on him. He is even being compared to Elneny.

This guy can turn on a 6 pence and he takes responsibility on the ball. He will literally blow minds after the crap we have seen for years.

Our two best midfielders are so thick they can get sent off with 5 mins to go after coming on for 10, or be sent off multiple times in a season. Then we havea youngster who shouldn't have the weight on his shoulders and Elneny. ****ing Elneny.

Arthur or Elneny. Not a hard choice is it.

I seen an old thread for him in Red Cafe of all places, and up to his move to Juventus 90% of them on there thought he was the best thing since sliced bread on the pitch anyway.

Is Bentancur not meant to be quite a decent player? 16m is very cheap. Is he better than Arthur?

Yeah, but we're bringing him as a backup I'm assuming. He'll be taking El Neny's/AMN's place in the squad. 25 year old having experience of playing in Barcelona and Juventus is better than anything we have right now. He's played for Juventus 22 times last year and 7 times this year so its been more first team than on the bench.
And if nothing else, if he comes here and fails, then it'll at least shut up the anyone is better than Xhaka crowd.

Another trash player. Juve have two very good midfielders and rest are crap. Locatelli and captain America

The whole “not wanted/failed at Barca or Juve” argument is dumb as well. Juve have 4 or 5 midfielders who’d walk into our squad. Barca probably had the same amount at the time they got rid of him as well.
Yeah - Alexis was escorted out of Barcelona lest we forget...

Alexis started 38 games in all competitions during his last season with Barca while Arthur started 17 games in all competitions during his last season with Barca. They are not comparable.

Man, why are you so negative about everything? We don't have any power as fan. All we can do is to hope new signings improve the team. And yes, I think Arthur improves the team more than AMN and Elneny. You think the opposite. Let's agree to disagree.

Seen clips of him for Gremio, Barcelona, and Juventus. He is a very decent player at a very good age. Playing alongside Partey would be a very classy midfield pairing that improves the team a lot esp for next season when we qualify for europe. He is a very underrated player. I seem to remember similar naysayers on here who trashed the team signing Nuno Tavares, calling him pants etc and even a dog kissing wierdo/ crxp signing, who is not wanted in the team. Where are these naysayers now???

Not the right time. I don't know if you are watching all games or come here regularly but defending Nuno on AM, at this time, will cost you.

The last few games he messed up and the bad part is the latest we can remember

He used to be great for Barcelona in his first season but you'll have your mind blown if you think that guy is the one who'd show up here, the 2019/20 version of Melo was already flawed physically he's only gone backwards since then. Can't run for more than 40 minutes, catches gonorrhea before CL matches, **** attitude in training stated by several coaches etc, this guy fell off the Brazilian cliff only he did it at 24 not 30.

Talent wise he'd be good enough but it's not about talent alone is it. Partey used to be the epitome of reliability at Atletico, was certain he'd explode here. Tierney looks like Kieran Gibbs at his worst these days, same with Auba Pepe etc. You could put prime Messi in our setup and he'd look like a donkey within months, it's what's bound to happen when you don't do any actual training during the supposed training sessions.

so i can see we will try to get Isak. This guy Vlahovic is similar than Localleti. I hope we can play at CL in the next year and Juventus no
This article from Gazetta says Juve want an obligation for Arthur in which case the transfer makes absolutely zero sense for us

In their defence they spent 72 million on him and is paying him 130k and he has been a flop for that money. A bad loan his value will hit rock bottom. So it makes no sense to just loan him out

This guy has averaged over 90% pass completion over a season which is pretty impressive. This tells me he doesn't lose the balll and has tons of technical ability to operate in tight spaces. His intelligence looks to also be very good. We need to be able to control the midfield and posesssion to the level that Man City and Liverpool can if we want to get anywhere near a league title. If he can help us do that, then i'm all for this signing.

You got all that from a passing stat?

Elneny has similar numbers of pass completion. That number could tell nothing. What is more important is number of key passes, assists, successful dribbling, last 3rd passes... Anything indicates a progressive attack and not only passing the ball, you can fake that stat like Elneny does.

He is progressive though. He had a brilliant season back in 2017/18 sustaining over 93% pass completion percentage over 27 games for Gremio. That is pretty impressive. He defenitely fits the profile for the type player we want in our midfield.
