Juventus have turned down an offer of 60 million euros from Real Madrid for Miralem Pjanić, claims Tuttosport on its front page this Tuesday. The Italian sports daily opens with the headline “A slap in the face for Real”, and adds that the Bosnian will probably renew his contract with Juventus, which currently expires in 2021.

Pjanic, along with PSG’s Thiago Alcantara, have been reported targets of Real Madrid since Mateo Kovacic’s loan move to Chelsea was confirmed last week. The midfielder was also of interest to Barcelona. But the Catalonian club ruled him out after Juventus asked for more than 80 million euros for his signature.

Pjanic began his career in the underage setup at Metz and made his senior team debut for the club in the 2007/08 season. After impressing with Metz, he joined Lyon in 2008, before moving to Italy in 2011 to play for Roma. In 2016, he signed for Juventus, where he has displayed his mastery of free kick taking and an incredible ability to control games. Since joining the Turin club, he has won two league titles and two Italian cups.
