Both Roma and Paris Saint-Germain are preparing for a colossal exchange that could see Miralem Pjanic leave and the Giallorossi acquire two of the Ligue 1 champions’ players.
PSG have been long admirers of the Bosnian playmaker, with President Nasser Al-Khelaifi having confessed a coy interest in the 25-year-old back in January.
“Pjanic is a great player who is most big clubs are keeping an eye on,” the PSG patron said, “although I doubt that Roma are willing to let him go at this time.”
In a potential transaction that could cost around €50 million, Roma could release Pjanic in order to secure the services of Lucas Digne and long-term target Adrien Rabiot.
The left-back arrived at the Stadio Olimpico on loan and with an option to buy worth €16m and with the PSG midfielder valued at around €15m to €18m, both could be used as makeweights plus an additional €15m in cash in order to reach a compromise over the Bosnian’s sale.
