After a five-year-stay, Miralem Pjanic leaves AS Roma and commits to Juventus.
According to reports, the transfer cost the Old Lady €32M and with Pjanic’s caliber, it is evident that the squad got more than a five-year stay from the celebrated playmaker.
Pjanic also disclosed that he is hoping for more success in the group.
The Bosnia-Herezegovina, who previously played for Lyon before switching to Roma first arrived in Stadio Olimpico in 2011.
Last season, he delivered ten goals and 12 assists for Italy’s capital club. He is one of the team’s key figures that propelled the squad to the third spot of the league table.
Roma is one of the strongest title contenders last season. But a poor run left them with a disappointing finish. However, despite the shortcomings, Pjanic continued to impress. As Bleacher Report described him, he is the creative fulcrum of the team.
Now that he will be playing for Juventus, his loss is considered a big blow to Roma and of course, a major boost to the Old Lady. This meant that the latter has already taken the first step in disarming one of their strongest title rivals.
Bleacher Report added that Pjanic’s arrival creates a perfect combination most especially if paired with the stellar Paul Pogba, who does not seem to be interested in leaving Turin soon.
Prior to signing to Juventus, Pjanic also received offers from Manchester United and Chelsea.
