Pjanic to snub Premier League interest

Last Updated: Mon, 18 Nov 2013 12:47

Reported Manchester United target Miralem Pjanic insists he has no immediate plans to leave Roma and move to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old joined Roma back in 2011 and has been a vital part of the side's resurgence, with the Stadio Olimpico outfit winning their first 10 games of the current Serie A campaign.

They are still top of the Italian top-flight and in good shape to challenge for a top-four place at the end of the season, with the likes of Juventus and Napoli closing in.

Pjanic's displays in a winning side have inevitably caught the eye of a few top clubs, with Manchester City and Tottenham also said to be interested in the Bosnia and Herzegovina international midfielder.

The talented youngster refused to rule out a switch of clubs later in his career but appears content to stay in the Eternal City for the foreseeable future.

"I still have a year and a half left in my contract," he told 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."

United are reportedly set to spend big in the January transfer window and punters looking to use a free bet might fancy them to rally over the second half of the season to retain their Premier League title.
