Manchester United rumours not true, says Pjanic

Published Add your comment

Roma star Miralem Pjanic has revealed that he was never approached over a move to Manchester United despite speculation to the contrary.

The Bosnian international has been heavily linked with Manchester United, but Le 10 Sport claims he's on the cusp of signing a new Roma contract with a €30m release clause.

Roma will also hand him a new and improved salary of €60,000-a-week that will tie him to the club until the summer of 2018.

His current deal expires at the end of next season, but Pjanic has said he never had the opportunity to speak to other clubs over a move.

"The interest of clubs like Manchester United, Barcelona or Paris Saint Germain? I'm used to it, but I must admit that none of it is true," Pjanic said.

"As I said before, I am a player of Roma and I still have a contract for one year. At this moment, I cannot say for sure what will happen, but football is like that. There will be time to think about it in the transfer window."

Earlier this year Pjanic said PSG would be the only club that he would play for in France.

But it seems like he is ready to spend at least another season in Rome. United are expected to be busy in the transfer market this summer, with David Moyes set to receive a bumper budget to strengthen the squad.

A central midfielder is likely to be a priority, with the Old Trafford club short of high-quality options in the position.
