Pjanic to Barcelona
Barcelona have now officially completed the expected deal of Miralem Pjanic from Juventus. Since Los Coules made an official statement on Monday afternoon. The former playmaker of Roma and Lyon is now categorically a Barcelona player and will play a role in Quique Setien’s team from the 2020/21 season onwards. After a somewhat controversial move to Turin from Rome, which caused considerable fan anger. Pjanic completes the four years with the Bianconeri to become the first significant Barcelona signing in the summer. Even though the midfielder is already 30 years old. The midfielder has signed a four-year agreement with the Spanish giants. It is becoming the last piece of mutually beneficial business between the two clubs. Barcelona will pay for the midfielder €60 million, while the additional €5 million will come in the form of add ons.
Back in December, a swap deal was concluded with the participation of Alejandro Marques and Matheus Pereira. As well as significant financial changes. There was a rush for these deals involving Pjanic and Arthur to be completed by June 30 due to capital gains. Still, Arthur’s initial reluctance to move almost wholly violated the plan. The midfielder has become the object of Barcelona’s desire since a few weeks ago, Fabio Paratici and Oscar Grau first sat down together. The goal was to find a deal that would satisfy both teams from a financial point of view. And, secondly, would help any team in a sporting capacity. Pjanic’s reputation is stellar. He will join the midfield that already contains Sergio Busquets and Frankie De Jong. However, there are doubts about the continuity of both Arturo Vidal and Ivan Rakitić.
