Spanish sports newspaper Marca has revealed Real Madrid are watching Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic very closely and could be preparing an offer to sign him in January.
Los Blancos have been scouting the 25-year-old for a while, and his recent good performances could have convinced Florentino Perez to finally make an offer.
Pjanic is a talented midfielder with good passing skills and dangerous in attack. In fact, he has scored eight goals in 15 appearances this season: six in the Italian league and two in the Champions League.
Marca claims Real directors have had the first contact with the player’s representatives. For now, they just want to secure a priority signing option or at least make sure they will be given the chance to match any offer Pjanic could receive.
The Santiago Bernabeu fans have good memories of Pjanic, since back in 2010 he put in a superb performance there with Olympique Lyonnais, scoring one goal and knocking Los Merengues out of the Champions League.
A few days later, he admitted in an interview that his dream was to play for Real Madrid: “Real Madrid are my team, I’ve always enjoyed to watch them play. Perhaps one day I’ll get to play for them, alongside my friend Karim Benzema.”
