Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur turn their attention to Barcelona superstar Miralem Pjanic as La Liga club continues in Camp Nou.
The 31-year-old joined from Juventus last summer in a swap deal worth €60 million with Arthur Melo but Bosnian and Herzegovina midfielder started only six of the 13 Liga games in which he featured last season and so his departure is a rather obvious one at a time when La Liga outfit are desperate to shift deadwood.
According to Spanish outlet Marca claim that Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur join Manchester United and Juventus to sign Pjanic this summer.
Barcelona president Joan Laporta is trying to free up space in the squad and their budget after Francisco Trincao is the latest figure to leave Camp Nou, having joined Wolves on loan with an option to buy on Sunday.
He follows Jean-Clair Todibo, Juan Miranda, Junior Firpo and Konrad de la Fuente as the Catalan club need to reduce their wage bill by €200,000.
Barcelona have already secured the service of Sergio Aguero, Memphis Depay, Eric Garcia and Emerson Royal this summer, while the club have not given up on tying Argentina talisman Lionel Messi to a new contract after his deal run out at the end last month.
