€30 million midfielder welcomes Manchester United interest and encourages Moyes to bid

by Sam Peoples

Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic has welcomed Manchester United’s interest in him and didn’t rule out a move to Old Trafford if a fee could be agreed between the clubs.

Reports from earlier this month suggested that United submitted an undisclosed offer for Pjanic and they were followed up soon after by claims that Roma would not listen to any bid less than €30 million for the Bosnian international.

The 23-year-old is enjoying a strong season with AS Roma in the Serie A but despite that, he has left the door wide open for David Moyes to make a move for him.

“It’s flattering and I am sure glad to hear that,” he said of United’s interest according to the Manchester Evening News.

“I have become a supporter of Roma and should there be a transfer it will require that the three parties agree.”

Roma expert Richard Hinman singled out Pjanic as a midfielder who could solve a lot of United’s problems and he is certainly the creative type who could slot right in our midfield.

In this particular scenario, it looks like Pjanic is goading interest from more than just United as he told Telefoot almost the exact same thing regarding interest from Paris St Germain.

“It’s the only club I would go to in France,” he said.

“I’m at Roma, it’s a big club and I feel really good here. I love the fans and I am a fan of Roma. If there must be a transfer, all parties must agree. For the moment, I’m staying concentrated on my football.”

Roma are now eight points behind Juventus at the top of the table despite their record breaking start to the season and it looks like Pjanic is just making sure that other clubs now he is available for a transfer should anybody come in with a bid that matches Roma’s valuation.

If David Moyes wants an available player, look no further than Pjanic.

Update: It seems that the MEN has fabricated Pjanic’s quotes as he did not mention United at all in his interview with Telefoot.
