The Juventus midfielder says he formally rejected the Spurs’ approaches in the past.
Perhaps he is in fact Pirlo’s true heir at Juventus, simply given the way he plays. His ability to strike fear into the opponents as he steps up to take a free kick anywhere close to goal is eerily similar to the maestro earlier this decade.
“There was the opportunity but at that moment I told them I was happy where I was and that’s why we didn’t sign the deal,” Pjanic indicated while he was still at Roma.
In the extensive interview, Pjanic goes on to talk about his personal life which ranges from his beginnings in a small town in Bosnia to playing on the biggest stage in global football.
Pjanic would arrive at Juventus for €32 million in the summer of 2016 and guide the Bianconeri back to the Champions League finale in 2017 against Real Madrid.
