Playmaker taking it easy on the negotiation front.
Roma playmaker Miralem Pjanic has insisted that he is not yet ready to open fresh contract talks with the club, Sky Sports reports.
The Bosnian international, who was heavily linked with a move away from the Italian capital this summer as Tottenham Hotspur circled, has enjoyed a strong start to the new season in a run that has seen the club leading the pack in the Serie A table.
Reports in the Italian media claim Roma want to open talks with Pjanic, who has two-years left on his current deal, about a new contract at the Stadio Olympico.
However, the former Lyon star has explained to L’Equipe that he is not ready to talk.
“I have two years remaining on my current contract and it is not the right time to talk about it,” he is quoted as saying.
“If the club wants to talk, there will be a better period for that. I am focused one just one thing so far, giving my very best to the club.”
Pjanic struggled at times under previous coach Zdenek Zeman last season, but is flourishing under new coach Rudi Garcia, and he took time out to praise the former Lille boss by crediting him as a key contributing factor to his good form so far.
“Since pre-season training, everything has been very clear between the coach and me,” he said.
“Anyway I had no desire for anything else than another season here.
“I want to pay back the coach and the club for the trust they showed me. I feel at ease at AS Roma.”
