Man United transfers: Roma’s Miralem Pjanic plays down Red Devils link
Man United transfers: Roma's Miralem Pjanic insists he plans to stay at the Serie A outfit for a long time despite interest from Red Devils
Miralem Pjanic has revealed he plans to stay at Roma for “a long time” despite reported interest from Manchester United.
The Bosnia-Herzegovina international, who moved to Roma from Lyon in 2011, has scored three goals and four assists in 12 Serie A appearances this season.
Pjanic has been a driving force behind Roma’s recent ascent to the top of Serie A, attracting interest from Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
The 23-year-old midfielder admitted he could leave the Serie A outfit in the future but insisted his immediate future lies in the Italian capital.
“I still have a year and a half left in my contract,” Pjanic is quoted as saying by Corriere dello Sport.
“Until 2015, I will probably remain at Roma. I don’t know what will happen after that but we are discussing it.
“My intention is to remain here for a long time because I am happy. I don’t exclude the possibility of one day playing elsewhere, but I doubt this will happen soon.”
Pjanic has scored nine goals and made 19 assists in 69 appearances since joining Roma from Ligue 1 outfit Lyon.
