There are rumors that Miralem Pjanic will be dropped after a tense stand-off with Maurizio Sarri in training as Juventus faces Bologna tomorrow. There was a clash behind the scenes between the midfielder and his coach according to La Stampa newspaper.

Reports have already been made that the Bosnian will be shelved in favor of Rodrigo Bentancur against Napoli for the Coppa Italia Final, but that plan was ruined by Sami Khedira ‘s injury.

Now the situation has escalated and Pjanic, who is heavily tied to a move to Barcelona in exchange for Arthur Melo, is likely to be dropped tomorrow evening against Bologna.

Sarri is under increasing pressure to deliver the Scudetto and a long Champions League run, after losing both the Supercoppa and Coppa Italia finals.

It is also said that Cristiano Ronaldo is frustrated with the situation, unhappy with the absence of injured Gonzalo Higuain being used as an occasional center-forwards.
