Juventus are working to extend the contract of Miralem Pjanic, despite strong interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The Bosnian midfielder has been instrumental to Juve’s success over the last two seasons, earning the interest of both of La Liga’s giants, Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Despite heavy interest from overseas, Juventus are keen to keep Pjanic at the club beyond his current contract which ends in 2021 and are working on a renewal to his existing deal.

Gazzetta Dello Sport report that Pjanic, along with Paulo Dybala, is considered an important part of Juve’s immediate future and the Bianconeri are keen to tie him down to a new contract until 2023 as well as offering him an increase in salary.

This follows on from a similar report from Goal Italia’s Romeo Agresti where he explained that Juventus will not entertain any offers for Pjanic and furthermore, the player has expressed no desire whatsoever to leave the Bianconeri.
