Roma have told any potential suitors for Bosnian midfield magician Miralem Pjanic that they will have to stump up an incredible €55m to take him away from the Serie A giants, according to Corriere dello Sport.
Pjanic has been consistently linked with a move in the past few weeks after a tremendous start to the campaign with Roma, helping a revitalised Roma fight for the Serie A title with three goals and five assists in domestic action this term.
That form has been enough to alert Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur to the possibility of completing a blockbuster summer switch, although the French champions have since turned their attention elsewhere with a bid for Yohan Cabaye.
Corriere dello Sport understands that Pjanic was first on PSG's shopping list though, but an eye-watering quote of €55m up front was enough for them to delay the deal until this summer at least.
The 23-year-old's price tag could soar further with a strong showing for Bosnia at this summer's World Cup, with United and Spurs monitoring the situation as they continue to keep tabs on a long-term transfer target.
