Man United target watches rivals despite contract talks

Published Add your comment

Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic has added fuel to the fire in terms of speculation over his future by choosing to visit the Parc des Princes last night for a closer inspection of Paris Saint-Germain.

Pjanic has been consistently linked with a switch away from Serie A during the last few months after a stunning campaign to date with Roma, with the Giallorossi so far fending off potential suitors PSG and Manchester United by placing a €55m price tag on his head.

The 23-year-old has been in talks over a new contract in the Eternal City but will not have endeared himself to Roma fans by travelling to Paris last night, watching PSG's 2-0 win over Marseille in the flesh.

Roma defender and fellow Man United target Mehdi Benatia were both in the French capital, with the Moroccan international watching former club Marseille with the club's fans in the away end.

PSG and any other clubs interested still face a considerable fight to land the Bosnian playmaker this summer, particularly with the World Cup providing another showcase for his skills.

Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini confirmed that Pjanic is in talks over a contract extension last weekend, with his current deal expiring in 2015.

Sabatini remains confident of tieing the maestro down to a long-term deal before the close of the campaign, but PSG and United are lurking with considerable cash reserves as they weigh up a recruitment drive this summer.
