Manchester United have entered the battle to sign Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic, according to Mundo Deportivo. The Catalan newspaper claims the Red Devils are one of three clubs who are “ready” to outmuscle Barcelona for the 30-year-old.
Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be keen on the Bosnian, with the Blues having been linked with a swap deal involving Jorginho, but it appears Barca are the team who are leading the race for the Juve player.
Mundo Deportivo reports that United are offering more money than Barcelona but Pjanic’s preference is to move to the Camp Nou when the transfer window reopens.
Whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are actually interested in the Bosnian international, it is debatable. The Red Devils already have a number of central midfielders to call upon, and reinforcing that area of the pitch would only be likely if Paul Pogba were to leave Old Trafford.
