Roma Midfielder Miralem Pjanic Flattered By Barcelona Interest
Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic has admitted he is flattered by media speculation linking him with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona, adding such a club can be a place where he could showcase his talent in a grander stage.
The 24-year-old Bosnia and Herzegovina international has been in fine form for the Giallorossi this season, scoring six goals and notching an additional six assists in his 33 league appearances for the club so far.
But more than his contribution in the goals department for Roma, many clubs have grown to admire the player for his uncanny talent to control the midfield – a talent Barcelona would love to have at the Camp Nou, especially with pass-master Xavi not getting any younger.
Other clubs from Europe’s elite are also thought to have joined the Pjanic fans club, with Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United among the most avid of admirers.
Pjanic, for his part, did not hide his sentiments regarding such speculation, speaking in an interview with French outlet Telefoot: “With very good players, it will be easy to fit in. [Barcelona’s] style of play, similar to what Rudi Garcia has implemented with Roma, fits me very well.
“They are a club where I can show more of my qualities. [Barcelona] would not be a bad destination,” Pjanic added.
