'TMW': Madrid to pay 70 million euros for Pjanic
Will we see Miralem Pjanic in Real Madrid white? This is the question that many in Spain are asking as rumours continue to grow over a reported move to the Santiago Bernabéu.
In the last hour, Italian website 'TuttoMercadoWeb' have suggested that Real Madrid have already tabled an offer of up to 70 million euros plus add-ons for the 29 year-old.
The same outlet continued to report that an agreement with the player is basically done, with the Bosnian set to move to the Spanish capital this summer in time for next season.
Even so, Real Madrid would not have an easy time securing his signature. Juventus are understood to be unwilling to let their star midfielder go for the 70 million that Real Madrid have offered, with a figure of 100 million reportedly closer to their valuation.
'TMW' reported that if negotiations went smoothly, the perennial Italian champions may be willing to lower their demands to 90 million - paving the way for Pjanic to sign a contract at 'Los Blancos' until 2024.
