Man Utd set for €20m summer transfer battle for Roma star
Manchester United are said to be preparing for a summer transfer auction over Bosnian midfielder Miralem Pjanic, despite the player being set to sign a contract extension with Serie A side Roma.
Pjanic, 23, is said to be close to penning a new deal with the Giallorossi, but Italian newspaper ‘Il Tempo‘ still predicts a summer auction for the player.
PSG, Barcelona, Manchester United and Real Madrid are all said to be gearing up for war over Pjanic, despite reports that the Roma man is close to extending his contract, in a deal worth €3.2m a year plus bonuses.
The player is reportedly in such high demand that an improved contract will not deter Europe’s biggest sides from continuing their pursuit.
