Manchester City target happy to stay with Roma

Roma midfielder Miralem PjanicRoma midfielder Miralem Pjanic says that he is happy to stay in Italy, despite speculation linking him with a move to Manchester City.

The Premier League champions are believed to be keen to swoop for the Bosnian playmaker this summer, as manager Roberto Mancini looks to overhaul his squad.

His attacking set-up has been the main source of the Italian’s frustration this season, with a number of his stars failing to produce the required levels of performance on a regular basis.

As well as bringing in one or two new strikers, Mancini is looking to inject some creativity into his side, and has highlighted Pjanic as one of his top targets.

Current City forward Edin Dzeko recently praised his fellow countryman, saying that he would like to play alongside him at club level.

Although Pjanic was flattered by the compliment, the 23-year-old said that he’s fully committed to, and happy with, Roma:

“It is nice to hear that Edin has spoken well of me, but I have a contract here,” he is quoted by talkSPORT.

“Perhaps one day we’ll get the opportunity to play in the same club side, but, for now, I’m proud to be able to wear this shirt.”

Pjanic joined Roma from Lyon in 2011, and has been impressive for the Italian club.

As well as being known for his eye for the killer ball, the midfielder has also built up a reputation for being an expert from direct set-pieces.
