I'm surprised to see Juve drop this kind of money in a post-COVID world. I thought their finances were a bit tight?

Thought this was an interesting read regarding the financial aspect of the transfer (read the whole thread).

Pretty sure there was the same thing a few years ago when Barcelona and Valencia swapped goalkeepers.

The accountants are running football these days...

Pjanic + 10 million for Arthur the confirmed deal. 

 

Barca's board the past 5 years.

Apparently Riqui Puig is a suitable replacement so I hear, but that doesn't change that this is shocking business. Especially if Pjanic will get game time over him.

Such a weird deal for Barca, swapping a 23 year old for a 30 year old makes no sense, especially for just £10m on top. Actually think they are totally fucked once Messi finally leaves/starts declining if that's even possible.

Technically they’ll make £60m on this deal, only by the end of the contract will it be £10m. Which is important accounting because apparently their board members/directors/someone needed the club to make £60m by the end of the month or their positions at the club would then not be secure as they would be held personally accountable...

I think both sides are currently regretting this swap right now.
