Serie A No.5 midfielder set to snub Chelsea in favour of Barcelona move

By | May 23, 2020

Serie A champions, Juventus playmaker Miralem Pjanic is reportedly determined to make the switch to Barcelona at the end of the current campaign, despite interest from a host of teams.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina international midfielder is rumoured to be on the radar of top teams across the world including Premier League giants Man Utd and Chelsea, while Barcelona and PSG are also in the hunt for his services.

The West London club were believed to be hopeful of securing the services of Miralem Pjanic as part of a player-plus-cash deal involving Brazilian-born midfielder Jorginho, however, Mundo Deportivo reports that the 30-year-old is only interested in joining one club.

The report claims that Ligue 1 giants PSG are willing to pay Miralen Pjanic higher wages than Barcelona, however, they have been unable to talk the ex-Roma star into turning down interest from the Spanish giants.

Since making the switch to Juve back in 2016, Pjanic has played 167 games for the club in all competitions.

Chelsea also eyeing a summer move for another Juventus star Adrien Rabiot who has been tipped to depart from Allianz Stadium after failing to secure place in the starting XI.
