£20m-Rated Midfielder Responds To Move Reports
Midfielder Miralem Pjanic has responded to reports suggesting he could be heading to Manchester City, Manchester United or Tottenham. See what he had to say.
Although the summer transfer window is officially closed that doesn’t stop clubs working hard behind the scenes to prepare for future signings, so we’ll keep you up-to-date with all the latest gossip. Today, Miralem Pjanic responds to reports he could be set for a move to the Premier League.
Midfielder Miralem Pjanic has responded to reports suggesting he could be heading to the Premier League by insisting he won’t be leaving Roma in the next 18 months, according to he Express.
Pjanic has been in superb early-season form for Roma with his 3 goals in 12 games helping the club off to a record start in Serie A that saw them win their first 10 games.
It seems his performances haven’t gone unnoticed here in England with the Express claiming that the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham are all interested in luring him to the Premiership with Roma valuing him in the region of £20m.
However, while the 23-year-old has admitted he could be tempted to try out a new league one day he insists he won’t be leaving Roma inside the next 18 months.
“I won’t exclude the possibility of one day playing elsewhere, but I doubt this will happen soon,”
“It certainly won’t be in January, which is what some people have said, and certainly not in the next year and a half either.” Pjanic is quoted as saying by the Express.
The Bosnia-Herzegovina international has just 18 months left to run on his current deal and it seems he’s keeping his long-term options open as the period he says he’ll certainly be at Roma until just so happens to coincide with when his contract expires.
The midfielder could therefore be eyeing a free transfer move if he decides he wants a new challenge and the newspaper suggests he won’t be short of options in England with Spurs and the two Manchester clubs all keen.
Obviously Roma aren’t going to let Pjanic go without a fight and are desperate to keep hold of him, and the report states that the Italians are set to offer him a new and improved four-year deal to try and secure his long-term future. Whether he’s prepared to commit remains to be seen.
