Pjanic: 'No thanks, Tottenham'

Miralem Pjanic’s agent has confirmed Tottenham made a proposal, but “both Roma and Pjanic politely declined the offer.”

Reports emerged today that Spurs had prepared a €15m bid for the 22-year-old midfielder as a replacement for Real Madrid-bound Luka Modric.

“It is true. Tottenham made a move for him, but both Roma and Pjanic thanked them for their interest and politely declined the offer,” representative Michele Gerbino told TMW.

“This is not the time to move or consider any other offers. The lad has tied himself to this project and first of all wants to do well at Roma.

“Besides, the club locked him down. Basically, he will not be moving. Pjanic had a very positive year, adapting easily to Serie A and you can see that from how quickly he learned to speak Italian. He’s very happy at Roma.”
