Bosnian playmaker highly regarded as best midfielder in Serie A but City have fallen flat with a mega-money bid

Italian newspaper Tuttosport claims Pep Guardiola wants the Bosnian to strengthen his squad this summer after winning last season’s Premier League title.

It’s also claimed that Real Madrid and Barcelona are keeping tabs on Pjanic’s situation in Turin.

Whether City return with a fresh offer remains to be seen, with the club keen to bring in a long-term replacement for ageing Brazilian Fernandinho.

Pjanic’s technical and creative prowess means he’s capable of playing as a defensive, central and even attacking midfielder.

But Napoli’s Jorginho could end up being the more realistic target following a change in manager at the club.

Maurizio Sarri has departed after failing to lead the club to the Serie A title, and new boss Carlo Ancelotti may believe he will benefit from cashing in this summer.
