Barcelona central midfielder Miralem Pjanic has revealed that he had the chance to move to Inter earlier on in his career.
“I had the chance to go to clubs like Bayern Munich and Inter in the past, but I didn’t think it was the right time,” he began an interview with French broadcaster Canal+, which was broadcast earlier on today.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina national team player then went on to reveal he could have also joined former club Juventus earlier than he did.
“I could have also gone to Juventus two years before I got there, but even then I felt that it was not the right time. I risked losing two years in the club where Paul Pogba, Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal regularly played.”
He then spoke on current employers Barcelona, who he joined in the most recent Summer transfer window, and shared the ambitions that he has for his career.
“Now I play for Barcelona, the best club in the world with the style of play I have always wanted to play with but I’m still not satisfied. I want to have the opportunity to win great titles. This is my goal. Be the best and win the big titles. And that’s what I want.”
The 30-year-old came through the ranks at French clubs FC Metz and left for Lyon in 2008 where he spent three years before a move to Roma. After five years there he moved to Juventus in 2016.
Since joining Barcelona on a four year contract, Pjanic has made seven appearances across all competitions to date but he has been unable to make any goal contributions in them.
