Pjanić already signed with Barcelona as the title race continues

With the papers already claiming Pjanić is already a Barcelona player, it appears that today will be a big day for the Catalans as the papers are convinced that Miralem Pjanić has already signed with Barcelona and his arrival should be made official later on today.

Subsequently, Arthur Melo has also been signed as a Juventus player as both the Pjanic-Arthur movements are part of a twin players transaction between Barca and Juventus.

The deals are said to have already been officially inked and Sport even states that the Bosnian midfielder has passed his medicals in Turin so everything is ready to be announced.

As for Arthur, the player dubbed to become the ‘next Xavi‘, he has been sold after serving only two years at the club.

It’s an unexpected development to see the young hopeful depart Barca, as there were high hopes for him both at the club and among the fans. However, Barcelona are adamant on balancing the books before the end of the financial year and seem to like Pjanić as a whole because he brings experience and consistency.

In another interesting development, Mundo Deportivo have followed up on the sudden U-turn of Gerard Piqué in his recent words of encouragement and claiming that Barcelona haven’t given up on the title just yet.

Even though Barca have dropped points at the Balaidos and Real Madrid have managed to edge out Espanyol and are now two points ahead of the Catalans, Piqué is admant they will fight until the final whistle on the last day if needs be.

The current scenario sees Los Blancos having an advantage with Barcelona have some tricky tests ahead of them but the title race is set to rage on.
