Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri was asked about Miralem Pjanic after his club’s 4-0 win over Lecce on Friday night in Serie A.

Pjanic played all 90 minutes of the club amid intense speculation he will complete a move to Barcelona this summer.

Sarri spoke about the 30-year-old afterwards and said he hopes he will stay.

“I don’t know if Pjanic will no longer play with Juventus, I have not received any communication,” he said.

“These are not things that interest us, the market only starts in September. Miralem’s a professional, he understands situations quickly.

“I don’t know anything at the moment, but I’m not worried.”

“He’ll be with us until the end of August. I hope he’ll stay with us even beyond that, but these are decisions that will be made at a later stage.”
