Xavi Hernandez planned the pre-season since the end of last year. Then he let some players know that he wasn’t counting on them and invited them to look for a team during the summer, which in most cases hasn’t happened yet. That’s why he gave them an extra week’s leave to find a solution for their future. In principle, among the players that the coach of Terrace It was with Miralem Pjanic, 32 years old.
The Bosnian midfielder joined the rest of his teammates on July 4 after a loan spell at Besiktas Turkish through which he passed without pain or glory. Despite this, the Barca coach wants to give him a chance as he can’t find a team. Him and Trincão they were the two assigned and the only ones to whom xavier he hadn’t been able to see live because until now they hadn’t been under his orders. In the Portuguese’s case, he’s one step away from completing his loan move from Sporting de Portugal but the Bosnian’s departure isn’t that imminent.
From the club they admit that the expectations are not very high given what is seen in the videos of their matches with the Besiktas, but it’s true that they hope to see him live during this pre-season start to see what he can offer. Moreover, he could even join the American tour which will begin next Saturday. Despite this, it seems almost utopian Pjanic, with the list of midfielders that there are in Barcelona, can find a place in the current team. And even less with the salary he has.
