Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri has rubbished reports regarding a return for Miralem Pjanic from Barcelona in the transfer window, while going on to hail Aaron Ramsey following his new role in front of the defence.
Reports have emerged recently that Pjanic is unhappy at the Nou Camo and is desperate for a return back to Turin, with it being understood that he is even willing to take a pay cut in order to make the deal happen.
Allegri for his part remained mum on the issue, instead preferring to praise Ramsey after testing him in a new role for the 4-3-3 formation.
“I don’t know about that. The club takes care of the transfer market, we talk every day. Ramsey played very, very well in front of the defence and I think in that role he can really become an important player," he said as per Football Italia.
“I salute Mire, because we spent four years together with great victories. He is a Barcelona player now, we have talented players, and I think if Ramsey can be convinced to play in front of the defence, he can really do well there. He already can see passing channels, has a good sense of the geometry of the field and can also rest on the ball more than he does upfront.”
Ramsey has not had the desired impact at Turin ever since he moved to Italy from Arsenal in 2019, managing to score just six goals in 65 appearances in all competitions and it will be interesting to see whether he will be able to establish himself as a regular in the starting XI, come next season.
