Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic has confirmed that there was interest from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United during last summer's transfer window.

The Bosnia international had been contemplating over a potential move away from Turin last summer and this saw him linked with both the Blues and Red Devils.

However, he decided to stay put eventually but there seems to have been definite from the Premier League giants. Speaking to Il Giornale, he said: "There was some interest, it's true, but I had no reason to change club.

"I don't know if Juventus will be my last big club, because transfers don't just depend on the player, but also on the club and who might or might not need you in that role."

Both Chelsea and United have been found out with the limited creativity in their ranks this term but the concern has been more prominent with the former, who have been regularly dependent on Eden Hazard.

Still, it remains to be seen whether either side will retain their interest at the end of the campaign where Pjanic's future may once more come under question with the Bianconeri's plans to spend on more recruits in the summer.
