Pjanic could leave Barca for free (Transfer Market Web)

Alleged Bayern Munich target Miralem Pjanic could be available...for free. FC Barcelona is looking to cut its wage bill and allowing Pjanic to move away would help with that:

The need for Barcelona is to lower the wage bill, at all costs. Also to free some important players, including Miralem Pjanic. According to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalan club would have let the former Juventus know that Ronald Koeman will not bet on him and would have granted him the freedom to leave for free, despite last year he was bought for €60m (in the budget), obtained through the sale of Arthur.

The newspaper based in Catalonia, the Bosnian midfielder, before accepting the termination of the contract proposed to him by Barça, wants to explore the market to see if there are companies willing to take him and pay him his high salary. Juventus and Inter - we read - are interested in bringing him back to Serie A, while in France they write that PSG could also give us a thought.

Could Bayern Munich be interested in a move for Pjanic?
