AS Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini claims to have already turned down a number of offers for Manchester United and Tottenham target Miralem Pjanic, but says that the midfielder is "for sale", reports Sky Sports.

The Bosnia international has been the subject of intense transfer speculation in recent months, with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain also understood to be keen on his signature.

Red Devils boss David Moyes has been linked with numerous attacking midfield additions in the January transfer window, as he looks to address the creative void currently present in his Old Trafford squad.

Tottenham have also been mooted as admirers of Pjanic, with director of football at White Hart Lane Franco Baldini having close ties with the Serie 'A' club, which could play a crucial role in helping secure the 23-year-old's services.

"We have had many offers for Miralem," Sabatini told Gazzetta dello Sport. "And not necessarily from PSG. For the moment he's for sale."

With a transfermarkt valuation of £16million, Pjanic can be regarded as an affordable acquisition for Manchester United, who are expected to strengthen this month, following a disappointing first half to the season in the post Sir Alex Ferguson era.

However, Spurs might be more reluctant to splash the cash, given their £100million outlay during the summer, and recent upturn in form since appointing Tim Sherwood as manager.
