Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has been asked about Miralem Pjanic, in the midst of intense speculation that he will complete a move this summer to Barcelona.
“I don’t know if Pjanic will no longer play with Juventus, I have not received any communication,” he said, Goal reported.
“These are not things that interest us, the market only starts in September. Miralem’s a professional, he understands situations quickly. I don’t know anything at the moment, but I’m not worried.”
Pjanic played all of the club’s 90 minutes in Juventus’ match against Lecce in Serie A on Friday night. With his help, they secured a 4-0 win. Afterwards, Sarri spoke about the 30-year-old and said that he hopes for the player to stay:
“He’ll be with us until the end of August. I hope he’ll stay with us even beyond that, but these are decisions that will be made at a later stage.”
Speculations suggest that Melo will arrive at Turin in a swap deal, which involves Pjanic going to Barcelona instead.
The latest reports suggest Arthur is heading to Turin this evening to complete his move to Juventus and the deal could even be announced later today.
