In recent weeks, Miralem Pjanic has emerged as Barcelona’s top target and Barcelona boss Quique Setien has made it clear that he was a big fan of the Juventus midfielder.
“I always say I like all the great players,” BeIN Sports told him. “Pjanic’s a great player although we see great players every day in the newspapers as well.”
He went on to praise Pjanic:
“He’s a player who has positive qualities for sure and brings positive energy.
“He is a player with great performance and behavior and we are glad to have him with us.”
Setien thus says his club wants Pjanic because he’s a ‘great player’ and also that he’s ‘happy’ that Arturo Vidal is still available.
Vidal was heavily associated with making way for the 30-year-old and moving to Inter, but he too would rather stay put by the coach.
