Here at the Football Transfer Tavern not a day goes by without at least one player who has been linked with a move away from his club issuing a denial about the transfer speculation. The latest is Roma playmaker Miralem Pjanic who Sky Sports claim has told L’Equipe he will honour his contract.
First bursting onto the radar after an impressive time at Metz and Lyon, the player moved to Serie A and has continued to impress in the Italian league, leading to Spanish giants Barcelona enquiring over the 22-year-old.
Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur are also sniffing around the player who is tied to Roma until 2015, however as our landlord points out when Barcelona come calling it is not easy to ignore the Catalan giants – something which may play a factor in the comment Pjanic made saying “Of course you never know what can happen, but I am under contract and I want to fulfil it.”
Gazzetta Dello Sport even go as far as claiming that a bid of 15 million euros could well be accepted by the club for the attacking midfielder who has struggled to reach the heights in form he produced last season and could well relish a change in the form of La Liga with Barcelona feeling the player could well have a future with them.
