Miralem Pjanic: Happy at Roma

The Bosnia international was on Tuesday quoted as telling Spanish news agency EFE that Barca scouts had watched him at the Stadio Olimpico and that he would be open to any subsequent approach from the Catalan giants.

The 22-year-old on Wednesday denied speaking to journalists, though, instead committing his future to Roma, for whom he has been a first-team regular since leaving Lyon in 2011.

Quoted in the Corriere dello Sport, he told ANSA: "I respect Barcelona, but my team is Roma and I'm happy where I am.

"I've not spoken with any journalists. I have two and a half years on my contract and I've never thought about leaving."
