Not so long ago, Miralem Pjanic was considered one of the best midfielders in Europe. Unfortunately for the 32-year-old, his best days appear to be well behind him.
In 2020, the Bosnian left Juventus in a controversial swap deal with Barcelona which saw Arthur Melo heading in the opposite direction. Unfortunately, the transfer backfired on all parties involved.
The former Roma star struggled for form and playing time under Ronald Koeman, before joining Besiktas on loan in 2021.
While Xavi’s appointment offered faint hopes of a Camp Nou boost, Pjanic’s position remains low in the pecking order.
According ANSA Going through TuttoJuvethe Bosnian international will embark on a new adventure in the United Arab Emirates where he will join Sharjah FC.
The source expects the playmaker to land in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday before signing a contract with his new club.
While the summer transfer session has already expired in the majority of European nations, players are still able to seal moves to other destinations.
Juve FC says
Truth be told, Pjanic was already showing signs of decline since his last two campaigns in Turin. While some expected him to return to Juventus, perhaps this chapter is best left closed.
Although joining a club in the United Arab Emirates suggests that the player’s career is on the verge of slowly fading from the spotlight, he will at least be able to count on a lucrative salary.
