Manchester United are reportedly weighing up a move for Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic, who is enduring a frustrating season in Catalonia.

Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a summer swoop for out-of-favour Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic.

As rumours continue to swirl surrounding a possible summer exit for Paul Pogba, United are expected to bolster their midfield ranks if the World Cup-winning Frenchman does leave.

A recent report claimed that the Red Devils were exploring a swap deal with Juventus involving Alex Telles and Adrien Rabiot, but the English giants supposedly have their eye on one of the Old Lady's former lynchpins.

According to, Pjanic fits the bill in terms of what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for, and the Norwegian would be keen to push through on a deal for the Bosnian as he remains unconvinced by Fred.

Pjanic arrived at Camp Nou from Juventus last summer in a deal which saw Arthur head in the other direction, but he has only started six La Liga games during a frustrating season under Ronald Koeman.

The 31-year-old's deal at the club does not expire until 2024, but he is not thought to be in Koeman's plans for next season and will be allowed to leave for the right price.
