In the Montpellier pre-match conference, PSG manager Laurent Blanc spoke about the rumored Pjanic transfer: “Pjanic could interest us during the winter transfer period. He could be an alternative to Cabaye. Should a midfielder arrive during this transfer period I will be happy, if not we will move forward with what we have,” said Blanc.

PSG have had a tradition of plucking Serie A stars, and Pjanic would join Jeremy Menez, Marco Verrati, Thiago Silva, Zlatan. Ibrahimovic, Ezequiel Lavezzi, and other players who joined the Paris’ club from Italy.
Pjanic has been in fluctuating form for Roma, starting the campaign out very strongly, but tapering off as the season progressed. He currently has three goals and four assists for Roma in 19 Serie A matches.
Although Pjanic is not the best disciplined player, he is an accurate passer, and would constantly provide Ibrahimovic and Cavani with scoring chances. He is a great dribbler and set piece taker. Pjanic would easily occupy a starting position should he move to PSG.
And with his contract expiring in 18 months, Roma would do well to cash in on the Bosnian playmaker now should he want to leave the club.
