Barcelona coach Quique Setien has talked about the situation with Arthur.
The player made it clear about his intention to stay in the club back in April.
In a statement sent to Mundo Deportivo , he said: “There will always be speculation but, sincerely, my idea is very clear. The only option that interests me is to continue at Barcelona.
“I’m very secure and relaxed. I feel really well here and, plus, I’m grateful to the club and technical staff for their confidence. This is yet another reason to be totally clear that my only desire is to continue.”
However, despite this there were exit rumors which has now been put to bed by the Barcelona boss.
“It is true that we have talked about something, but not too much,” Setien said when asked about Arthur at his pre-match media conference on Friday.
“The current circumstances are different from the usual ones and will affect the market.
“As for the players, I am clear that all those who are currently in the squad, I count on them and I need everyone because there are going to be many games.
“On outside speculation, I choose not to speak.”
