Chelsea and Man United in huge boost as Serie A giants deny rival deal

Pjanic

It’s three cheers for the Manchester United and Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern this evening as our friends over in Rome open the door to a potential mega summer deal. 

Miralem Pjanic is a name we’ve heard bandied about our four halls quite often recently, with both the Red Devils and the Blues linked with mega moves for the Bosnian maestro.

The 26-year old is thought to be a major target of incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, though earlier reports had suggested Juventus had trigged a release clause in his deal in the Italian capital.

However, I Giallorossi have quelled any notion their playmaker could be off to Turin this summer by releasing a statement on their official website.

“AS Roma denies today’s report on sportmediaset.it concerning an alleged payment of the buy-out clause in Miralem Pjanic’s contract as the story is completely groundless.”

Though they’ve taken a stand against that, both Premier League titans will surely take heart in knowing that the Old Lady have not yet firmed up their interest.

How big a signing would Pjanic be? Is he Premier League quality?
