Roma president James Pallotta is hopeful that Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain target Miralem Pjanic will remain at the Stadio Olimpico this summer.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who has scored six goals and provided six assists in 34 Serie A appearances this season, has just over a year left to run on his current contract.

United are long-term admirers of Pjanic, but PSG appear to be his most likely destination should he leave Rome before the start of next term.

However, Pallotta reckons that the player is likely to put an end to such speculation by committing his future to the Italian side sooner rather than later.

“I think Pjanic will remain at Roma,” Pallotta told “Everything depends on him, but that’s part of the game. With Pjanic, we have already discussed a contract renewal.”

Pjanic joined Roma from Lyon in July 2011, after spending three seasons at Stade de Gerland.

He began his senior career at Metz.

Pjanic has been capped 46 times by Bosnia and Herzegovina, scoring eight senior international goals.

He will be hoping to add to his tally at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

Bosnia and Herzegovina have been drawn in Group F, along with Argentina, Iran, and Nigeria.
