Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo has refused to return to training after spending holiday in his native Brazil.

The midfielder is contracted to Barcelona till the end of the season.

The player has not joined the squad as expected and we are considering a course of action,” a club statement said.

It now appears there’s a suit against the 23-year old as reports ESPN.

He was involved in a player-plus-cash deal with Juventus’ Miralem Pjanic in a reported €72m deal.

Arthur will be a Juventus player come next season but still remains a Barca player for now.

Barcelona will play Napoli in a Champions league quarter final mixture at Nou Camp.

But the Brazilian is missing from the Barca squad.
