Report: Spurs clear to sign 100-cap star; Paratici can get him for nothing

Spurs could be free to move for Barcelona midfielder, Miralem Pjanic, with the Catalan club said to be willing to let the Bosnian international leave for free.

Pjanic has been credited with a move to Spurs and he could well be someone Fabio Paratici moves for, given their time together while with Juventus.

It is claimed by Goal that Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman, doesn’t see Pjanic as part of his plans and is now willing to let the midfielder leave for free. It means that Paratici could well land his first signing for the club on a free.

Pjanic has been a well-respected midfielder in Europe for some time now. Spells with Roma and Juventus had proved fruitful, but a move to Spain hasn’t quite worked.

It represents yet another financial hit for Barca. They paid a whopping £55m for him just last summer. But the club are now looking to move on a number of players.

Goal reports that Samuel Umtiti is also on the chopping block. Like Pjanic, he could be allowed to leave for nothing.

Bargain

Despite Pjanic failing to fire with Barcelona, that shouldn’t be a slight on his ability. He’s been a class act during his career and can easily rediscover his best form.

In terms of bargain buys, Pjanic is right up there for Spurs. They need to make some new signings and Paratici will be desperate to add quality.
