Pjanic is aware that he is on the way out of Barcelona, who want to get rid of one of the very well paid players in Ronald Koeman's team. Returning to Juventus, signing for Tottenham or leaving for PSG are the options which are also open to him, as well as going back to Roma. This is all according to 'Il Tempo'.
This media outlet says that Fali Ramadani, one of his agents, has offered him to Roma. He did so to increase the chances of his client getting a move to the club. The main stumbling block is his salary because he is trying to demand six million euros a season, something which is not particularly good for the club's economy.
Coming back to Italy would mean a return to Serie A, where he was at his best. It is worth remembering that his performances at Juventus were what lead to Barcelona signing him in exchange for Arthur. The problem is that he has never been good or had regular playing game.
The fact Barcelona are making it easy to leave will be key to all talks. The board need to significantly reduce their wage bill to allow Lionel Messi, whose contract expired on 30th June, to stay on. The best way to reduce that wage bill quickly is by selling several footballers.
