Miralem Pjanic is on his way to Turkish Super Lig. The midfielder does not appear in Ronald Koemans plans at FC Barcelona and is allowed to leave. Besiktas is likely to hire the Bosnian.
That says Fabrizio Romano. Pjanic is already on its way to Turkey and is soon to be medically tested. The final details of midfielder salary are now being discussed by Barcelona and Besiktas, but it is expected that this will not cause any problems. Pjanic wants to leave Barcelona because he doesnt feel like being part of the competition selection for six months.
This way Barcelona continues to work on the salary budget. The top Spanish club is in financial weather and needs to reduce costs considerably. On Deadline Day, one of the grand earners, Antoine Griezmann, left for Atlético Madrid. Luuk de Jong was announced not much later as a new Barcelona acquisition.
Miralem Pjanic will land in Istanbul tonight. He has definitely accepted to join Besiktas as it doesnt want to spend 6 months out of the team in Barcelona 🛩🇹🇷 #Besiktas #FCBFinal details to be sorted between the two clubs on salary payment.

Update: Besiktas officially made the arrival of Miralem Pjanic. Turks report a one-season rental deal with Barcelona on their own channels and are likely to take over part of the Bosnian salary. As a result, Catalans salary charges are slightly lighter.
