Miralem Pjanic to leave Barcelona for Al-Nassr

Former Barcelona

Miralem Pjanic is forced to leave Barcelona for Al-Nassr. The Bosnian midfielder couldn’t find a place in Xavi’s long-term plans for the club.

Pjanic signed for Barcelona from Juventus 2 years ago. Unfortunately, the midfielder couldn’t establish himself in Camp Nou’s center part of the field. As a result, he was loaned out to the Turks last summer.

Barcelona gets rid of Pjanic

The Bosnian international did better in Turkey than in Spain but didn’t meet expectations. That brought him back to Camp Nou & Besiktas weren’t interested in buying him permanently. Everyone knows Barcelona needs to release players to balance their books & they won’t hesitate to sell out-of-form players like Pjanic.

Looking at the bright side, an Arabic club, Al-Nassr might just have come to the Catalans’ rescue. They are offering €8 million per year for Miralem Pjanic, which would help Barca in recovering from its debt. It however hasn’t been confirmed yet & the Arabs are waiting for Pjanic’s response.

Reports also link the Bosnian midfielder to Juventus, the place which he left, and everything went south. He liked a tweet posted by a Bianconeri fan which has stirred things up in the transfer market.

Catalans are releasing Moussa Wague

Barcelona wants to renegotiate the deal with Moussa Wague and discharge him as they hunt for buyers for Miralem Pjanic. In fact, AS says that the La Liga heavyweights are thinking of giving the Senegalese center-back, who has had a problematic recent year owing to injuries, the “letter of freedom.”

The Senegalese right-back was loaned out to various clubs after signing for Barcelona in 2019. First, he went to OGC Nice post-COVID and later on to a Greek team called PAOK Salonika. However, due to injuries, those terms were cut short and he was sent back to Camp Nou.

Wague spent most of the last 3 years on the bench due to injuries and too much competition. The 23-year-old only made 6 appearances for the senior team but now even the B team is filled. This leaves Barcelona no option but to sell him once and for all.
