Arthur Melo has in his head a unique idea that overcomes any speculation about his future: the Brazilian wants to continue at Barça. Despite the fact that his name constantly appears in exchange operations for the next campaign (the last one with Juventus by Pjanic) in his head there is no other landscape than that of continuing to wear blaugrana.Its performance so far has been uneven, alternating great games with long absences due to injuries and he has yet to take off permanently. Still, from the club he gets the message that they continue to trust him despite the fact that there are reports in the media that he could enter into operations with other footballers. Most of the entity’s technical managers consider that by age it is an important asset in Barça’s strategic planning for the future. The Brazilian does not want to fail this confidence of the club and has been taking care of his physical preparation with a coach and a nutritionist for some time and during this time of confinement he is working to return in the best conditions and end all these kinds of rumors that place him outside Barcelona.Furthermore, he feels fully integrated in Barcelona where he intends to settle. Two years after his arrival, it is before the key moment.

Nimoy also contributed to science-themed projects, such as the 1994 IMAX documentary Destiny in Space, which contained footage from nine Space Shuttle missions.
