Pjanic open to Roma exit

AS Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic has opened the door for a possible departure in the off-season, amidst reported interest from some of Europe's biggest clubs.

The Bosnia international is considered one of the most technically gifted playmakers in European football when he occupies a deep-lying role or the number 10 spot for the Giallorossi.

Pjanic enjoyed what was his best season in his career in his fifth campaign in Serie A, scoring 10 goals in 33 outings, and that form has led to speculation that the former Metz midfielder could be seeking a new challenge.

Juventus, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG have all been mentioned as potential suitors, and, manager Luciano Spalletti won't be able to do much in keeping the 26-year old at the club if interested clubs match the player's 38m euro release clause.

"I still have two years on my contract with Roma," Pjanic told Sada El Balad. "If a formal offer reaches Roma, then we'll see."

Since arriving from Lyon for 11 million euro in 2011, Pjanic has scored 30 goals and registered 46 assists in 185 appearances.
