Miralem Pjanic and Barcelona are ready to go their separate ways, and AC Milan are reportedly one of the teams attentive to the situation.
According to what TMW are reporting that this week could be decisive for confirming the farewell of Pjanic after only one season with the Blaugrana. Ronald Koeman considers the Bosnia international to be outside of his technical project and the player dreams of returning to Juventus with Max Allegri the head coach.
He is waiting for a sign from Turin but their priority for the midfield at present is Manuel Locatelli, so Pjanic and his entourage are inevitably listening to offers from other interested clubs, specifically Inter and Milan.
Tottenham are keen because former Juventus director Fabio Paratici is at the helm, and the north London club have asked for information. Barça are willing to release him for free (or almost), terminating his contract to get rid of his €7.5m net per season contract and further lower their wage bill to get Lionel Messi’s new agreement over the line.

Why would a club with Bennacer, Kessie and Tonali go for Pjanic at this point? On that salary and his 3 year contract, it’d still be a €45m+ deal for Milan to pick up gross (he wouldn’t qualify for the tax breaks a new Italian resident would)
I think Pioli has almost no say in transfer strategy to be honest. Probably can input his wants and needs but he’s not spending the budget.
I agree on that. Pioli’s wishlist hasn’t been ask for. He just takes what he can get.
this koeman is the biggest and most bizarre mistake of barcelona in the history of the club.
Pjanic is a good and quality player who only lacks the time he deserves and the coach does not allow him to do that.
“One of the teams attentive to the situation”. Many other teams are also. But we all know Milan doesn’t have the money to this market.
