Miralem Pjanic has signed a new five-year deal with Juventus. It’s reported the Bosnia international will receive €6.5m plus bonuses under the new contract in Turin.
This adds another two years to the contract, which had been due to expire in 2021, and almost doubles the €4.5m per year salary.
The midfielder has spent the past two seasons with the Bianconeri and has agreed to stay until the end of the 2022/23 campaign.
A statement on the club website read:
‘Juventus are delighted to announce that Miralem Pjanic has renewed his contract at the club until 2023.
‘Since arriving prior to the 2016/17 season, Pjanic has become an increasingly-integral part of the Bianconeri midfield, providing pin-point passes across the pitch while firing free-kicks into the back of the net with outstanding consistency.’
Pjanic has made 92 competitive appearances for Juventus, scoring 15 goals and providing 28 assists since joining from Roma.
He has helped Juventus win the Serie A and Coppa Italia double in both of his seasons at the club following five productive but trophy-less years at Roma.
Reports earlier this summer suggested Real Madrid had identified Pjanic as a top target should Luka Modric move to Inter Milan before the transfer window.
