Messi wants to see Pjanic make a move to Barca to add to his side’s options in the centre of the park

The Bosnia international has been very impressive since his move to Turin from fellow Italian side Roma in the summer of 2016.

In 185 games for the Old Lady, the talented 28-year-old has managed to bag 30 goals and 46 assists, a fantastic record for a central midfielder.

The player’s fantastic technique and ability on the ball, as well as his quality from set pieces, has made him one of the most feared central midfielders in the whole of Italy, and righty so.

If Barcelona do make a move for Pjanic, it’ll be interesting to see if €50M is in fact enough to pry the player away from the Italian giants.
