Roma forced into Pjanic sale?

Roma may be forced to sell Miralem Pjanic in order to avoid further Financial Fair Play sanctions, say reports.

The midfielder has a release clause of €38m and has been heavily linked with Juventus and Bayern Munich recently.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports today that if the Giallorossi are to keep the playmaker, they will offer him a new contract that removes the buyout clause.

However, the capital club must submit their accounts to UEFA by 30 June and need another €30m before then to avoid further sanctions.

The Lupi would likely face a €4m fine, but the bigger concern is that they could be expelled from European competitions if they fail to balance their books.

Galatasaray were recently banned from UEFA tournaments for two seasons for similar reasons. Therefore the Bosnia international may be sacrificed, according to the newspaper.
