This summer, Juventus and Chelsea are expected to compete for the signing of Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic. Since joining the Catalans last summer, the Bosnian has battled to break into the starting XI.
Juventus are interested in re-signing Miralem Pjanic, according to Calciomercato. The midfielder was moved to Barcelona as part of a massive swap deal that also saw the Italian giants sign Brazilian player Arthur from Barcelona.
Chelsea is keeping an eye on Miralem Pjanic’s position in Barcelona as well. The Blues may be preparing for the possible departure of Jorginho, who has been linked with moves to Inter Milan and Juventus.
Because of his passing abilities, positioning, and vision, Miralem Pjanic was projected to prosper in Barcelona. However, the 31-year-old only made 19 La Liga appearances for Barcelona this season, the majority of which were as a substitute.
Pjanic has frequently stated his dissatisfaction with his lack of playing time at Barcelona, and he is apparently eager to leave the club.
After a poor 2020-21 season, Juventus will undertake a big roster change this summer. The Bianconeri have already appointed Massimiliano Allegri as their new manager, and are now looking to add to their team with some high-caliber players.
During his four seasons with Juventus, Miralem Pjanic helped the Italian giants win four consecutive Serie A crowns and two Coppa Italias. Juventus’ midfield has been a big source of concern for the club’s management, who may be planning to re-sign Pjanic this summer to address the issue.
Chelsea will attempt to outbid Juventus for Pjanic’s signature. The Blues are trying to improve their squad this summer in order to capitalize on their Champions League victory this season. Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is said to have made recruiting a striker and a midfielder a priority.
