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."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
