Paris Saint-Germain and the Italian powerhouse AS Roma have started working on a mega deal that should see Miralem Pjanic join the French champions in the summer, Gazzetta dello Sport has learned.
Bosnian midfielder has been linked with a move away from Rome for quite some time now with Europe’s top clubs such as Chelsea and Real Madrid expressing interest in his services.
However, Gazzetta dello Sport reports that French giants PSG are eager to use their positive business relationship with the Giallorossi in order to realize the transfer of Miralem Pjanic, who has been on PSG’s radar for months.
French champions are reportedly willing to present an offer that could be worth up to €50 million, but PSG have a ‘player(s) plus cash’ package to propose to their Italian counterparts.
PSG are willing to give up on Lucas Digne, who has been on loan with AS Roma this season and his value of €15 million would be inserted into the bid, together with Adrien Rabiot, who is valued at around €18 million.
Rabiot would be a direct replacement for Miralem Pjanic in the centre of the pitch, but PSG hope to wrap up the deal for the Bosnian international by throwing in a €15 million transfer fee on top of the two-player offer in order to convince AS Roma officials to sell their prized possession.
Miralem Pjanic is enjoying another fine season in Italy having already scored 9 goals in 25 Serie A matches.
