Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic will decide his own future this summer, according to the club's president James Pallotta.

As reported by talkSPORT, Pallotta has insisted that he wants the playmaker to stay with the Serie A outfit, but has admitted that the player himself will ultimately decide his future. 

This will come as good news for the likes of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, who have both been linked with the star's services in recent time. 

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether Manchester United step up their interest in the 24-year-old in the near future.

Manchester United are expected to make a number of signings this summer, however Pallotta will be hoping Pjanic doesn't depart his side. 

Speaking to, Pallotta said: "I think Pjanic will remain at Roma. Everything depends on him, but that's part of the game. With Pjanic, we have already discussed a contract renewal."

The likes of Manchester United and PSG may well be keeping a close eye on any negotiations between the club and the player over the coming weeks.

For now though, Manchester United's immediate focus will be on appointing a new manager and ending this season on a high. 

The Red Devils travel to the St Mary's this Sunday and will be desperate to secure all three points against Southampton.
