As a result of his underwhelming start to life at Camp Nou, Spanish publication Sport have claimed that he ‘doesn’t have the confidence’ of manager Ronald Koeman.

The report adds that Pjanic would ‘have no problem’ to move to a top-club, if Barca opened the door for a transfer.

It it becomes clear that the 31-year-old will struggle for regular game time, Chelsea and Inter Milan are two sides that would be ‘willing to bid’ for the player.

“If I’m Chelsea I take him now. If I’m Chelsea I go and get him… quick!”

He added: “If I’m them I go and get Aguero if I can’t get a [Erling] Haaland or someone like that.”
