Di Marzio: Pjanic/Arthur swap could be done in 48 hours

The long-running Miralem Pjanic/Arthur saga could come to an end in the next two days, Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

Barcelona and Juventus now have an agreement over the financial details of the move.

The main hurdle has been convincing Arthur to swap Catalonia for Turin, but the Brazilian is coming around to the idea.

The clubs have agreed on the valuations, rating Pjanic at €60m plus bonuses and Arthur at €70m plus bonuses.

The difference is now €10m, not €15m as it had been before.

Arthur’s full approval for the deal should come soon, finally unlocking one of the big deals of the summer.

In fact, Di Marzio states that the two clubs believe a total agreement could come in the next 48 hours.
