Sports:Barcelona are unhappy with midfielder Arthur Melo

Barcelona are unhappy with midfielder Arthur Melo after he was photographed on a night out with Neymar on Thursday night. While Ernesto Valverde played down the matter during his press conference ahead of Saturday's game against Getafe, the club are less than pleased, both for his decision to go out but also the fact that he was pictured with Neymar.

On the field, Arthur is enjoying a fine patch of form, with two goals so far this season, yet his latest off-field decision could land him in hot water with the club.
