PSG reveal 'difficulty' signing Man United target in January

Published Add your comment

Manchester United target Miralem Pjanic will not be leaving AS Roma this month, after Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi revealed the great difficulty at negotiating a January transfer, reports Sky Sports.

The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Stadio Olimpico this month, but will now stay with the Serie 'A' club until at least the end of the season.

Red Devils boss David Moyes has been credited with an interest in bringing Pjanic to Old Trafford during the mid-season window, as he looked to strengthen his creative midfield options.

The £37.1million signing of Juan Mata has gone some way to filling the creative void, but Manchester United will continue to monitor the Bosnia international's progress in Italy.

PSG have also been mooted as admirers of the Roma star - who has played an integral role in Rudi Garcia's side's ascent to second in the table - but any chance of a January switch to Parc des Princes was quickly ruled out after preliminary talks with the playmaker's current club.

"Miralem Pjanic? When we talked with Roma, we discovered that it was very difficult to get him during the January transfer window," explained Al-Khelaifi in an interview with L'Equipe.

"Roma are second in Serie A and it is difficult for them to let one of their most important players leave in the middle of the season. The tifosi (fans) would become mad!"
