Setién takes Arthur to Vigo

The Brazilian midfielder enters the call, despite the rumors that he could travel to Turin this weekend to pass the medical examination.

Call without many surprises for this Saturday's game against Celta (17 hours) in Balaídos. The 'morbid' was to know if Quique Setién finally called Arthur Melo or not, after speculating about the possibility that the player passed the medical examination with Juventus in Turin this same weekend. Finally, the Brazilian will have to wait, at least until Sunday to travel to Italy, since the Cantabrian coach has decided to include him among the 23 footballers who will travel to Vigo this afternoon.

Those who are not on the list are Frenkie de Jong and Sergi Roberto, both injured, and Sergio Busquets, suspended. In the case of Sergi Roberto, the discomfort of the rib fissure he suffered ten days ago against Leganés continues, but it is expected to recover it in the face of the match against Atlético de Madrid next Tuesday.

Thus, Setién only has three first-team midfielders -Rakitic, Arturo Vidal and the aforementioned Arthur- for this Saturday's game, although the presence of Riqui Puig in the list could open the doors to ownership. His last two games have been spectacular and the praise he is receiving from the coaches invites us to think that he could have a great opportunity to go out in the gala eleven against Celta.

In the Setien call, apart from the fifteen first team players, a total of eight affiliate footballers have been included.

The complete list of players for this Saturday's match against Celta is: Ter Stegen, Neto, Semedo, Piqué, Alba, Lenglet, Umtiti, Junior, Vidal, Rakitic, Arthur, Braithwaite, Griezmann, Suárez, Messi, Fati, Riqui Puig, Araujo, Collado, Peña, Monchu, Cuenca and Morer.
