FC Barcelona have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Juventus to sign Miralem Pjanic this summer.
The Bosnian midfielder will put pen to paper at the end of the season in a deal valued around €60 million with €5m in variables.

Meanwhile, Pjanic will not be joining his new teammate until the ongoing season wraps up in a matter of weeks.
The 30-midfield maestro joined Juve in 2016 in a deal worth €32 million and has since then scored 22 goals and 36 assists in 171 appearances across competitions.
Miralem's move to the Camp Nou was part of the deal to see Arthur Melo arrive in Turin at the end of the season.
“FC Barcelona and Juventus have reached an agreement for the transfer of player Miralem Pjanić. The cost of the operation will be 60 million euros plus 5m in variables.
"The player will sign a contract with the club for the next four seasons, until the end of the 2023/24 season, with a buy out clause of 400 million euros. The player will remain with Juventus until the 2019/20 season is over.”
