I've been hearing some rumors of pjanic to the epl with either Chelsea or man city as the likely destinations
Pjanic has shot down those rumors whenever asked in a manner that will make him public enemy #1 if it came out a transfer was his choice. . . the Man City one that seems mainly derived from Dzeko publicly urging him to come.
I think Pjanic only moves if both of these things happen: 1) the owners try to get him to sign an extension and he refuses 2) there's a somewhat comparable and top flight ready player (like an Ericksen) that will come and sign a longer deal
I don't think the mere amount of any offer will do the trick nor does Pjanic show any sign of wanting to leave.
As crazy as it sounds De Rossi may be the more likely of any big name Roma player to leave. I say that because this summer could be the first time that it could happen with a majority of fans pacified in thinking it's best for the future since he really had a difficult injury riddled year and makes so much money. Doubtful but maybe more likely than any of the young stars.
My best guess for Roma (since a lot
may depend on new manager) is that not much happens with stars:
Osvaldo, Burdisso and maybe Stekelenberg will be sold.
That money plus a bit more is spent on:
1) starting CB to pair with Marquinhos
2) young striker (like an Aubameyang)
3) top flight ready MF option
4) maybe a RB if Piris option is not picked up
5) veteran GK if Stek is sold
6) focus on extending young stars' contracts
Also, Roma has more promising young players on loan or at the primavera level than most clubs so I'd expect a couple of new arrivals to be along lines of Florenzi and Romagnoli this year.
