Juventus Playmaker Miralem Pjanic Agrees To Join Barcelona In The Summer: Report

Barcelona are reportedly looking to bring in Juventus playmaker Miralem Pjanic in the summer, with 23-year-old Brazilian Arthur expected to go the other way.


Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic has reportedly agreed to join Barcelona in the summer transfer window. Reports suggest the 30-year-old Bosnian has agreed terms with Barcelona for a move once the transfer window opens. However, Barcelona are yet to agree to terms with Juventus to bag the Bosnian playmaker. Juventus have placed an asking price €60 million on Miralem Pjanic. However, the financial hit of the coronavirus pandemic is likely to make it difficult for Barcelona to cough up the asking price for Miralem Pjanic.

Barcelona transfer rumours: Neymar, Martinez on the cards

Barcelona are reportedly looking to go all out to bring PSG's Neymar back to Camp Nou. It is reported that the defending LaLiga champions are close to signing the 28-year-old Brazilian. Barcelona are looking to off-load players like Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele to gather funds for the Neymar transfer.

Barcelona were also monitoring Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez closely before the outbreak of coronavirus. However, with no matchday revenue in over two months, Barcelona will need to ensure some sales before they move for either Neymar or Martinez. A move for both Neymar and Lautaro Martinez appears highly unlikely given the finances involved in both the transfers.
