Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri appears to have hinted that the club is indeed working on a possible return for Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic.

The 31-year-old has been linked with a return to Juventus after a difficult first year at Barcelona where he’s found game time hard to come by under Ronald Koeman.

Allegri spoke at a news conference on Tuesday on a range of topics, some of which have led reporters to believe he was discussing Pjanic.

“We have Cristiano [Ronaldo], who is great at shooting from distance, and Dybala, who is an excellent finisher closer to goal,” he said.

“One of these is right footed and the other is left footed. We might also sign another right-footed player who is good at free kicks...we’re working on it.”

The latest updates have suggested that Pjanic could take a pay-cut and join Juve on loan for a season with the option for a second. However, the Turin giants may have to offload Aaron Ramsey before a deal for Pjanic can be done.
