While Arthur became an isolated figure thereafter, Pjanic completed the rest of the campaign with Juve and was set to link up with Barca imminently.

However, Barca have announced the 30-year-old will now join them in 15 days’ time, after he tested positive for COVID-19.

“Pjanic tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday, August 22 after suffering some discomfort. The player is in good health and is isolated at home,” a statement read.

“For this reason, the player will not travel to Barcelona until 15 days later to join Barca.”

Pjanic leaves Juve having won four Serie A titles and two Coppa Italia trophies.
