Maurizio Sarri has rubbished reports that he and Miralem Pjanic have had a training ground fall out.

Reports have been emerging that Juventus manager Sarri and the club’s midfield stalwart Pjanic have had a bitter exchange at the J Complex.

This talk comes on the back of rumors that Italian tactician is considering a swap deal. The deal would see Miralem Pjanic forced out of the Juventus exit door and Arthur Melo coming in.

The Bosnian international has been rumored to be part of numerous swap deals that may be considered this summer.

While the transfer rumors were not addressed, the former Chelsea and Napoli boss was quick to dismiss the talks of a fallout.

Speaking to Sky Sports Italia he said:

“The story of my quarrel with Pjanic is one of the biggest hoaxes of the season.”

“I talk a lot with Miralem, maybe he is one of the guys with whom I have more dialectical comparison and a better relationship.”

“Pjanic has done as the team in these last two games, with a good start and a subsequent drop.”

“For tomorrow’s race let’s see how he is and then we’ll decide.”

“Of course we don’t have many other solutions in that role at the moment: Ramsey is more spendable for a piece of the game than for 90 minutes.”

There will no doubt be transfer activity in Turin this summer, but will Ojanic be one of the Bianconeri exits?
