Reports: Juventus put hefty €130 million price tag on Real Madrid target

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo

Miralem Pjanic is rumoured to be on his way out of Juventus.  After a limp exit from the Champions League, a major midfield reshuffle is on the cards.

Reports have surfaced suggesting that the Old Lady is seeking to bankroll transfer acquisitions by letting go of a few players.

According to Calcio Mercato, Pjanic might prove to be one of the casualties. With reports linking Juventus to Paul Pogba, Toni Kroos and Isco, the club are looking to raise funds to lure their preferred option(s). They have already agreed to a deal with Aaron Ramsey, with the Welsh playmaker slated to move on a free in the summer.

Rumours suggest that Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain are keeping an eye out for the cultured midfielder. Further, the Juve top-brass have reportedly put a hefty €130 million price tag on the player, however, a sum of around €100 million has been touted to be adequate to lure the midfielder away from Turin.

Pjanic, who has spent three seasons at the club, recently signed a fresh contract keeping him with the Italian champions till 2022. Affectionately titled ‘The Pianist’ by the Juve faithful, the smooth playmaker has made quite the impression over the years.

Fox Sports Probability Rating: 2/5; Nothing genuine has probably come out of Calcio Mercato and one suspects that this too is in the same mould. Other sources haven’t come out with anything on this so one can only assume that it is all quiet on the Pjanic front.
