Miralem Pjanic has poured scorn on rumours of a move away from Juventus this summer, insisting that he loves the club and they love him.

The 29-year-old midfielder has been linked with a number of top clubs this summer, including Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Manchester City, but it appears there is no move on the cards.

Speaking to Tuttomercatoweb, Pjanic said: ‘I’m very calm. I still have four years left on my contract, I love Juventus and they love me.

‘I’m happy at this club, they’re a serious club and I can still give them a lot. I’m under contract and loved here. I’m very happy with the fans and the club, who are great.’

Pjanic joined Juve from Roma in 2016 and has won three straight Serie A titles in an impressive three seasons in Turin. He was also in the Serie A Team of the Year in his final season at Roma and first two at Juventus. 

This week, Pjanic’s attentions turned to international football, where his Bosnia-Herzegovina side lost 2-1 against Italy in a Euro 2020 qualifier.

‘I’m proud of our fans and our performance,’ he noted at full-time. ‘We had a good game. We faced a beautiful Italy side. It’s never easy, but we deserved at least a point.

‘The goal we conceded at the start of the second half hurt us. Italy have good dribblers, we lost a few too many balls. It’s a shame, we could’ve done more.’
