Inter Milan, Juventus and AS Roma are reportedly interested in signing Barcelona-expelled Miralem Pjanic.
According to Sports, The Bosnian midfielder is keen to return to Italy this summer. He spent five years at AS Roma and four years at Juventus before moving to Barcelona last summer.
Inter Milan, Juventus and AS Roma are all keen to get the player out on loan for a season this summer. However, Barcelona are keen to sell him on a permanent basis.
Miralem Pjanic came to Barcelona from Juventus Turin under an exchange deal with which Arthur Melo signed for the Bianconeri.
Most fans and experts believed that his vision, passing game, creativity and set pieces made him the perfect addition to the Blaugrana.
However, the former AS Roma star struggled to get into Barcelona’s starting XI as he failed to win the trust of Dutch coach Ronald Koeman. In the club’s pecking order, he was behind Sergio Busquets, Frenkie de Jong, and Pedri.
The 31-year-old had to be content with a supporting role in his debut season with the Catalan giants. He only played 19 games for the club in La Liga.
Miralem Pjanic is said to be eager to leave Barcelona due to a lack of regular playing time. The Blaugrana are believed to be ready to terminate the midfielder’s contract but would rather sell him this summer.
Pjanic will need a pay cut to force a move to Italy this summer. Inter Milan, Juventus and AS Roma are all suffering financially from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and want to lay off some of their top earners this summer.
