Arthur has spoken at a press conference in Brazil where he's announced he will join Barcelona this summer. Today is a chance for him to say thank you and goodbye to the team and fans who he's played for during his development. "I'm living a dream. I have to thank everyone. This is a 'see you later', not a 'goodbye'. I hope to return one day. I'm very proud to leave by the front door. I've been here since I was 14!"

The Brazilian confirmed that the agreement made between the two clubs for January 2019 has been brought forward to July 2018. "Barcelona asked to bring forward my transfer to this summer. I wasn't involved in the negotiations, so I didn't participate in my transfer. It's something which the two clubs have decided."

"My exit has been transparent and I'm very happy with how it's all gone. Me leaving is good for all parties," he added.
