Former Juventus star Miralem Pjanic believes that Alvaro Morata and Matisse de Ligt should think twice before leaving Juventus, but believes that “players sometimes need new motivation”.
Pjanic left Juventus to join Barcelona in a swap deal with Arthur in the summer of 2020.
However, he struggled with playing under Ronald Koeman in his first season at Camp Nou and moved to Besiktas on loan last summer.
His former teammates Morata and de Ligt could follow in his footsteps and move to Barcelona in the future.
Morata is in talks with the Catalan side and is seeking to leave Juventus in January, knowing that the Bianconeri will not make his move final in June.
De Ligt is a long-time target for Barcelona and his agent Mino Raiola recently suggested the Dutchman could be on his way out of the Allianz Stadium at the end of the season.
Pjanic warns Morata and de Ligt of a possible move to Barcelona?
“Morata has had an amazing career so far. He played for big clubs like Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Juventus. Sometimes players need motivation, but I will think twice before leaving a club where I feel comfortable.”
“Morata knows what he’s doing, Barcelona hired Xavi, the coach who knows the club well, I don’t know the details, but I’ve always heard that Morata was happy at Juventus even if I always needed to think when Barcelona called about him.
And Pjanic continued: “I have a yacht with three years left on his contract with Juventus, he has the right commitment, but I don’t know if Barcelona is interested.”
“He made a great choice when he decided to join Juventus and work with Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini. He is happy at Juventus and when you are happy it is better not to leave. We will see if he will have the motivation to leave.”
