Miralem Pjanic signs Juventus contract extension
Last Updated: 21/08/18 6:51pm
Miralem Pjanic has signed a contract extension to keep him at Juventus until 2023, the Italian champions announced on Tuesday.
The Bosnian midfielder has won back-to-back Serie A and Italian Cup doubles since joining Juventus from Roma in 2016.
"I'm very happy to extend my contract until 2023 with this amazing club," Pjanic posted on social media.
A statement on the club website read: "Juventus are delighted to announce that Miralem Pjanic has renewed his contract at the club until 2023.
"Since arriving prior to the 2016/17 season, Pjanic has become an increasingly-integral part of the Bianconeri midfield, providing pin-point passes across the pitch while firing free-kicks into the back of the net with outstanding consistency."
Known as a set-piece specialist, Pjanic has scored 15 league goals directly from free-kicks since arriving in Italy in 2011.
The 28-year-old has also scored 12 goals in 79 international appearances for Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Juve kicked off their Serie A title defence last Saturday with a dramatic 3-2 victory at Chievo as Cristiano Ronaldo made his competitive debut after joining from Real Madrid for £105m last month.
