Miralem Pjanic: Not keen on a move

The 23-year-old £20-million rated playmaker joined the Serie A side from Lyon in 2011 on a four-year deal reportedly valued at 11million euro (£9.5million), but is yet to sign a contract extension.

However, amid interest from other clubs, Pjanic remains clear on where he wants to be in the near future.

"I don't want to leave. Everyone at the club knows that," Pjanic told Roma's official website.

"I've always wanted to stay here. I want to give everything to start the season well.

"I don't know about the financial situation at the club. A new contract? It doesn't happen overnight. We're talking about it.

"The desire is there and we'll see what happens in the future."

Pjanic is also ready to fight for his place in coach Rudi Garcia's side.

"There are a number of us in that position (midfield) and whoever's on form will be in the team," Pjanic said.

"The coach will find the right system. We need to do what we can to let the new signings settle.

"There are some great players who can help us to achieve success. Then it'll be up to the coach to decide who to pick."

It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.
