AS Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic says he'd find it difficult to turn down Barcelona.

Pjanic has been linked with Barca in recent days.

"I've always been a fan of Real Madrid, but it would be a pleasure to play for Barcelona," he told Oslobodjenje.

"The Blancos have been my favourite team since I was a child, but it would be awkward refusing a proposal from Barcelona.

"At the moment I feel good in Rome, and at this point I do not know if I will leave the club in the summer."
