Having failed to really make that much of an impression under Ronald Koeman at Barcelona, Miralem Pjanic has spent this year in Turkey getting his feet back under him as a solid midfielder. That play has led some Italian sides to become interested in a potential move for Pjanic.

Specifically, Napoli has been linked with him in a loan deal. However, Pjanic seems to be keen on finishing out his deal at Barcelona and making an impact.

“Barcelona has an important meaning for me, it was a dream I had as a child. I am very proud of my career: Metz, Lyon, Roma and Juve: I spent nine years in Italy, the most important of my career. I love Italian football a lot. For now I imagine staying in Barcelona for another two years and finishing the contract. Then, we’ll see. Never say never.”

It's unclear if he fits into Xavi’s idea of a Barca midfield. At first glance, it wouldn’t seem so. We’ll just have to wait and see depending on what Barca do with him.
