Barcelona Star Arthur Injured For Upto Four Weeks (Details)

Barcelona have confirmed midfielder Arthur Melo is out for up to four weeks due to a hamstring injury.

The Brazil international has enjoyed an encouraging first season at Camp Nou following his arrival from Gremio, making 27 appearances.

Having been handed the No.8 shirt, the 22-year-old has been compared to Andres Iniesta, and alongside Ivan Rakitic and Sergio Busquets.

"Tests have confirmed that first-team player Arthur Melo has a muscular injury to the left femoral biceps," a club statement read.

"The approximate down time is between three and four weeks."

That means Arthur will certainly miss Sunday's trip to Athletic Club as well as upcoming Liga fixtures against Real Valladolid and Sevilla.

He will also be forced to sit out the first leg of Barca's Champions League last 16 tie against Lyon in France, though he should be fit to return by the time the second leg is played inCatalunya on March 13.

Perhaps most pertinently, though, he will almost definitelymiss the second leg of Barca's Copa del Rey semi-final against Clasico rivals Real Madridon February 27.
