Manchester United have made an official bid for Roma's Miralem Pjanic, according to the Bosnian press.

The Bosnian playmaker has long been linked with moves away from Roma, with Tottenham Hotspur often reported to be interested, but a report from a Bosnian journalist states that United have launched an official bid believed to be between 20 and 25 million.

In addition, Roma themselves confirmed that offers had come in, with Walter Sabatini, the sporting director of Roma, stating "We have had many offers for Miralem, and not necessarily from PSG."

Pjanic has been a key member of the Roma squad that got off to such a fine start in Serie A this year, but their title challenge appears to be slipping away from them, and with the club already having purchased Argentine playmaker Leandro Paredes, and heavily rumoured to complete the signing of Cagliari's Radja Nainggolan in this window, Pjanic could be out the door as a result.

If this goes through, we promise not to make any jokes about our next signing being Cabaye.
