Barcelona have signed Miralem Pjanic from Juventus for £60m, a deal confirmed a matter of hours after fellow midfielder Arthur Melo had moved the other way for a similar fee.
The deal for Arthur, 23, is worth an initial £66m, meaning the Brazil international will leave after less than two years at Camp Nou.
Arthur joined the reigning LaLiga champions from Gremio in 2018 and has gone on to make 72 appearances for the club, winning the league title and the Spanish Super Cup in his first season.
Pjanic, a Bosnia and Herzegovina international, made a name for himself during a five-year spell at Roma before joining Juve in 2016, where he has won three Serie A titles, two Coppa Italia crowns and one Italian Super Cup.
Like Arthur, the deal for the 30-year-old will go through at the end of the 2019/20 season.
He has signed a four-year contract in Catalonia.
