Arthur already fly to Juventus, but Barcelona will welcomed new addition, Miralem Pjanic.

However, Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal, Ousmane Dembele, Junior Firpo and Samuel Umtiti could all be sold to raise over €100m in transfer funds.

Koeman represented Barcelona as player from 1989-1995, before serving as assistant manager from 1998-2000.
