Barcelona and Juventus seem condemned to come to an understanding over Miralem Pjanic. The Catalan club aren't counting on the Bosnian for the upcoming season and the player is only thinking about returning to where he was happy.
Despite the days passing without advances, in Italy, they believe it will happen. On Saturday, Pjanic was the cover story on Tuttosport: 'Pjanic wants Juve.'
In addition to that, the cited media carry comments from Ariedo Braida, the former Barça director who is now the general director at Cremonese.
"I have been with Miralem in Barcelona and he told me he's only thinking in 'bianconero,'" Braida told Tuttosport of the midfielder's desire to move back to Juve.
Remember that Braida and Pjanic have a strong link, so the comments carry significance.
Pjanic is currently with Barça in Germany preparing for Saturday's game against Stuttgart but the club are open to letting him leave this summer.
Coach Ronald Koeman hardly used him last season and he's not in his plans this year, either.
