Miralem Pjanic, Juventus’ Bosnian midfielder, has been put on the market this summer.
After the filtering of information about interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid for the services of Pjanic came to light, Juventus appear ready to sell him. However it won’t be on the cheap.
The Italian newspaper, ‘Tuttosport’, claim that Juventus have finally put a price on the former Roma midfielder’s head.
The magic number Juventus are looking for in order to start negotiations is €80m, a price they feel is fair value in the current climate.
It appears that the motive behind putting a price on Pjanic’s head is so that Juventus can make a move for sought-after midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
The interest from Barcelona, and a potential windfall of €80m, would help current Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri add a more suitable midfielder to the system he wants to use next season.
At the moment Juventus are asking everybody to be calm. Beppe Marotta has already said that they’ll “only sell those who ask to leave” which could very well turn out to be the case with Pjanic.
