AS Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic has signed for Serie A rivals, Juventus on a five year deal worth £25.4million ($48.8million). The 26 year old was rumored to either join Barcelona or move to the English Premier League with Manchester United or Chelsea but instead, decided to stay in Italy.
The midfielder had been at Roma since 2011 and proved to be a valuable assist to their midfield. He played 33 matches last season and score 10 goals and accumulated 12 assistant to help Roma finish third in the league. He currently has 68 caps for his country, Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Pjanic will prove to be another great bit of business from Juventus as Pjanic has proven in this league that he can perform on a weekly basis. He passing ability is world class and has a powerful long shot on him and can take free kicks. He is also a great ball dribbler which makes him a dangerous player.
The signing of Pjanic could make way for Paul Pogba to leave the club. Pogba has been linked to top clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United. However, Juventus will be keen to keep Pgoba so they can form a formidable partnership in the midfield with Pjanic.
Does this signing spell the end for Pogba at Juventus or can they keep him?
