The Bosnian is currently on loan at Turkish side Besiktas
Barcelona will soon have to deal with Miralem Pjanic's future again. Besiktas will not make his loan move to Turkey permanent and Barça will have to find a new home for the midfielder, whose not in the club's plans despite having a contract until 2024.
Inter Milan are one of the teams that have sounded out the situation. However, the Italians are not prepared to make a big financial investment in Pjanic, who is 32, and would prefer a loan deal.
A loan without any fee, that is, beyond paying part of the player's salary, as Besiktas have done this season. The Turkish side have paid €2.75 million, which works out ar around a third of Pjanic's salary. Barça have had to pay the rest, although the player did accept a slight reduction in order to be able to go out and play football this year.
Pjanic made the move to Turkey because a move to Italy did not materialise before the summer transfer window closed -- the Turkish window was open for longer and staying at Barça would have meant not playing.
However, Besiktas do not want to make the deal permanent and Barça need him off the wage bill to free up space to make their own signings.
