Miralem Pjanić wants to return to his former club, Juventus, as soon as possible, and a new report claims that he wants to get his move before FC Barcelona depart for Germany to play preseason matches.

The Bosnian was signed in a pseudo swap deal involving Arthur going the other way. However, when he arrived he was unable to impress incoming manager Ronald Koeman and lost all prominence.

The Catalans are keen on moving him and his high salary on, and a return to Juve would be beneficial to all parties at this point.

However, the Turin based club does not want to pay any money to get him back. They are looking for a loan deal, and are asking him to reduce his wages to make it happen.

Barcelona is reportedly willing to accept to loan him so long as his salary is completely off the books. A swap would also be seen as a good option. although it is unlikely to come to fruition. Barcelona would only want Rodrigo Bentancur, and the bianconeri would be unwilling to part with the Uruguayan.

Pjanić is said to be looking to resolve his future as soon as possible, before Barcelona leave for Baden-Württemberg on the 28th.
