Barcelona B team top goalscorer Monchu to replace Arthur in Napoli clash

Arthur has refused to return to Camp Nou for the remainder of the season and the Catalans are looking for alternatives.

Barcelona B's Ramon Rodriguez 'Monchu' could be included in the squad for the Champions League tie against Napoli, Mundo Deportivo report.

He would replace Arthur, with the Brazilian unwilling to return to training after the vacations Quique Setien gave the first team.

Barcelona's squad is very limited; with Arturo Vidal and Sergio Busquets disqualified, the only midfielders the coach can count on are Riqui Puig, Ivan Rakitic, Frenkie de Jong and Sergi Roberto.

If Monchu does make it into the squad and Barca get past the Serie A outfit, the 20-year-old will travel to Portugal for the remainder of the 2019/20 CL campaign.

This season, the La Masia product has registered ten goals and three assists while playing as a central midfielder; he's the top goalscorer of the team.
