Juventus’ chances of re-signing Miralem Pjanic would be boosted massively if the Barcelona midfielder agrees to take a big pay cut.
Nicola Balice has provided updates about Juve’s chase of the midfielder, saying that it is Massimiliano Allegri’s wish to have Pjanic and Manuel Locatelli in the side. But the idea of Pjanic returning will take concrete shape if the Bianconeri can make room for him the squad and in their wage budget.
New contacts have been made between the club and the player’s agent Fali Ramadani and Barca are only waiting to see where Pjanic wants to go and they’d be willing to grant him a free transfer till the time he doesn’t ask for a severance fee.
If not, he could go on loan elsewhere but Barca would have to pay a portion of the salary. But Juventus are facing issues around the squad numbers and wages. His current wages of €8.5 million are out of their reach and because of the Old Lady’s wishes to lower his salary from his first stint, they’d want him to earn about €5 million per season only.
Because of these issues, the move is still on stand by and there are lots of things yet to be sorted out in this saga.
