Real Madrid set to hold talks with Barcelona outcast over a shock transfer.

Real Madrid set to hold talks with Barcelona outcast over a shock transfer.

Real Madrid are reportedly planning to hold talks with Barcelona misfit Miralem Pjanic over a possible summer transfer with the Catalans keen on offloading him.

In a bit of a strange report carried by Spanish outlet El Gol Digital, it is alleged that Barcelona fugitive Miralem Pjanic is angling for a move to arch-rivals Real Madrid this summer after sustaining a difficult debut season at Camp Nou.

Pjanic arrived at Barcelona in the summer transfer window last year from Juventus in a move that saw Arthur Melo make the switch the other way.

Ten months into his assignment at Camp Nou, it is safe to say that things have just not gone out as per plans for the Bosnian international.

Indeed, Pjanic was infrequently featured over the course of his debut campaign at Barcelona, with manager Ronald Koeman favoring the likes of Sergio Busquets, Frenkie de Jong, Pedri, and Ilaix Moriba over the former AS Roma and Juventus midfielder.


Having grown disillusioned with his status with the Blaugrana, Pjanic is keen on achieving an exit this summer.

Barcelona, for their part, are also determined on offloading the midfielder as they look to trim their huge wage bill in order to aid the deal renewal of talisman Lionel Messi, who, as things stand, has become a free agent after his deal ran out at the end of last month.

And, shedding Pjanic’s €6.5 million-a-year wages would ease the Catalans free up space to settle the Argentine talisman.

To that end, Barcelona have submitted Pjanic the “letter of freedom”, an opportunity where they terminate his deal by mutual consent with the midfielder being paid a compensation package.

However, he has turned down the offer and is evaluating his options amid strong connections with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, among others.

Amidst this, a shock name has emerged as a potential destination for Pjanic – Barcelona’s arch-rivals Real Madrid. As per the aforementioned report, Los Blancos would contemplate bringing in the Bosnian international this summer as they look to reinforce their midfield unit and look to get him back to the best levels that he regularly displayed at Juventus.

Real Madrid are in the market for midfielders this summer, with Carlo Ancelotti endeavoring replacements for Luka Modric, who is starting the final phase of his career, while Isco is assumed to be on his way out amid interest from Everton.

Inter Milan star Nicolo Barella has been lauded as a priority target for the Merengues, but now, bizarrely, Pjanic seems to have registered on their radar as well.

The midfielder himself would be open to such a move as he wishes to prove Barcelona wrong, the report continues, while also stating that the Catalans would also agree to such an execution as long as they are able to get his wages off the books.

Any possible move would likely cost in the region of €20 million. Certainly a story that needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.
