Ex-Barcelona chief Cury brands Arthur-Pjanic swap with Juventus 'among biggest aberrations in history'

Former Barcelona chief Andre Cury is stunned they allowed Arthur to leave for Juventus last summer.

Arthur was sent to Juve in a swap for Miralem Pjanic.

Speaking with Sport Cury, who scouted and helped sign Arthur for Barca, declared: "It's one of the biggest aberrations I've seen in the history of football.

"Something absurd: Arthur is 23 and earns 2 million net, and you exchange him for Pjanic who is 31 and takes 6 million?"

Cury had been a South American scout and director with Barca for over a decade.
