Italian media outlet Tuttosport has put Juve’s Miralem Pjanic in headlines as Bianconeri have allegedly rejected Real Madrid’s 60-million-euros offer for the Bosnian. The operation has been called “CR7 Effect”.
The Old Lady has reportedly rejected FIVE offers for Miralem Pjanic this summer, including huge bids from Real Madrid, Barcelona, Man. City, and Chelsea. As per the source, Juve now consider the Bosnian unsellable and untouchable and want to renew his contract. Juventus have allegedly offered the 28-year-old a new 5-year deal worth 6.5m + bonuses per year. The player’s current deal expires in the summer of 2021.
The midfielder himself commented on the interest in him last month via ESPN: “I listen to a lot of things that are not true. I’m cool. I’m preparing for my new season. That’s what’s the most important. What I did the last two seasons for Juventus was really great, and I am happy what I’m doing here. I am cool … and I don’t care about what they are writing because I listen and I read a lot of things, and a lot of things are not true.”
Real Madrid allegedly want to sign a top-class midfielder amid latest rumours concerning Luka Modric. Miralem Pjanic has been a long-term transfer target for the Royals but the Spanish club is also considering the candidature of a more skilled Christian Eriksen from Tottenham Hotspur.
