Pjanic is loaned to Besiktas
The midfielder leaves after an unsuccessful season at Barcelona, Miralem Pjanic has joined Turkish side Besiktas on a one-year loan with no option to buy after hardly featuring for Barcelona in his first season at the club. The transfer window in Spain closed on August 31. but it is still open in Turkey, meaning a deal could be struck to take the Bosnian to Istanbul.
Pjanic and his loan transfer
Pjanic hasn’t been the sharpest tool, to say the least, he is just strongly mediocre, if not underwhelming and unpromising at times, the problem with him being his gameplay, he had an arguably bad season in Barcelona, and it’s somewhat understandable to see why he is going to Besiktas. Pjanic was a player that Barcelona were trying to sell this summer in an attempt to lighten their wage bill and he wasn’t involved in Ronald Koeman’s plans for the upcoming campaign. He played 30 matches during the season, starting 13 times and completing 90 minutes just five times. Koeman preferred the trio of Sergio Busquets, Frenkie de Jong and Pedri in midfield as the Bosnian failed to live up to expectations at the Camp Nou. He wasn’t included in the squad for the first two LaLiga games of this season and, although he was in the squad for the third match, he didn’t warm up. The move comes after Pjanic failed to find a move back to Italy, where he enjoyed successful spells with both Roma and Juventus.
Pjanic is most of the part a bad player, and he might not be one in his new team if he really wants to evolve and progress through his career as a midfielder, he can easily adapt and overcome some obstacles that will come with new club, but if he desires evolution and he will need to do something at some point, well at the end time will show us what will happen in the end.
