During the summer, it was a recurring theme that construction player Miralem Pjanic Juventus could leave for Manchester City or Real Madrid, for example. But this has not happened or will not happen. And so the Bosnian remains, playing at the latest Serie A opener with Chievo Verona (3-2) tribe. This Tuesday was followed by what had been expected for days: Pjanic remains loyal to Juve, the 79-time international has prematurely extended his contract until 2023. In 2016 Pjanic came to Turin for 32 million euros from AS Roma. Since then, the free-kick specialist has won the double twice.
In the past winter Edin Dzeko was about to move from AS Roma to Chelsea. But the Bosnian expressed his love to the city of Rome: “The Roma are my family.” The Giallorossi have been over this issue for a long time – and they are delighted about this in the 2017/18 season, in which Dzeko scored the decisive goal directly at the start of the 1-0 win against FC Turin. Now the former attacker of VfL Wolfsburg or Manchester City (66 goals in the Bundesliga, 50 in the Premier League, 54 in Serie A) even has an extension of his contract: 32-year-old Dzeko is to extend his contract until 2020 – and receive better pay.
At BVB, Ciro Immobile once failed to make it between 2014 and 2015, but at Lazio Rome, the Italian striker blossoms on a regular basis: The most recent dream goal in the 1-2 opener against Napoli was his 53rd Serie A goal in the 70th league game for Biancocelesti. Of course, the Romans want to hold on to the international (32 internationals). The contract, which runs until 2022, is to be extended until 2023 – and real estate itself is to earn EUR 3.2 million net per year. According to the “Gazzetta dello Sport”, the Lazio bosses are already working hard in the background on the deal, which should be completed as quickly as possible.
