Juventus know they need to pile up more money if they intend to compete with European giants in this upcoming summer transfer window.

La Vecchia Signora has been tied with a handful of potential signings of the likes of Paul Pogba, Matthijs de Ligt, and Alexis Sanchez, but they're set to face tough competition from Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Bayern Munchen.

That's why the Bianconeri may entertain the idea of letting some of their talents go, especially in their crowded midfield where they're currently stacked with a lot of great players.

Now, it looks like Zinedine Zidane and his Real Madrid may help them with that regard, as Los Blancos have reportedly set their eyes in one of Juventus' key playmakers: Miralem Pjanic, as per Tuttosport.

The Bosnian could be sold for a sum close to 100 million, and with Real Madrid also reportedly interested in Paulo Dybala, perhaps they could orchestrate some kind of 2-for-1 deal in the summer.

There have been some growing concerns on Real Madrid over Luka Modric's recent form, as the Ballon d'Or winner is already 33 years old and his impact has taken a major dip since the World Cup.

Pjanic is one of the Serie A's best playmakers thanks to his ability to open up the pitch and create space for his teammates. He's also great at set pieces and finding gaps through defenses with his accurate passing, so he'd be an instant fit in Zidane's scheme and a suitable replacement for the Croatian.

Real Madrid will be quite aggressive in the summer in their pursuit for new talents and Pjanic may be a realistic target for Florentino Perez, considering Manchester United are unwilling to engage in talks with them over a potential move for Paul Pogba.

As for Juventus, they may also put Sami Khedira, Moise Kean and Douglas Costa in the market to stack some extra money for their summer wish list.
