Juventus star Miralem Pjanic reportedly rejected a move to Manchester United once Barcelona made the midfielder an offer.

According to Sport , the 30-year-old Bosnia-Herzegovina international received offers from United and PSG but turned them down when Barca made a move for him.

Sport says Pjanic, who is under contract until 2023, has a verbal agreement with Barcelona, with the Catalan giants now offering a number of players as part of a swap deal for the player.

One of those players offered is believed to centre back Jean-Clair Todibo, who is currently playing his football on loan at Schalke. The centre-back is also interested Everton, but Barca are keen to use the Frenchman as bait to get Pjanic.

It is claimed Juve have refused to accept midfielders Arturo Vidal or Ivan Rakitic as part of any swap deal.

It’s clear that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to bolster his options in midfield with Paul Pogba’s future up in the air.

And United are reportedly working behind the scenes on an exciting deal to sign Velez Sarsfield star Thiago Almada.




Solskjaer is believed to be looking at young players to add to his squad and 19-year-old Almada is on his shopping list.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Ed Woodward has already made contact with the Argentine Under-20 attacking midfielder.
