Incoming boss Antonio Conte wants Miralem Pjanic at Chelsea for upcoming season.
However, Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini has spoken at Football Italia stating that the Bosnia-Herzegovina International will not move from Rome unless that clubs does not pay release clause of €38m.
He said: “We mustn’t do anything, we can’t even answer the phone because it’s a deal we don’t want to do. Pjanic might go but only if someone pays the clause.
“It’s something that concerns us daily, but it doesn’t affect our behaviour. We’re doing nothing, we’re a passive witness.
“I haven’t spoken with him. He talked to the Coach Luciano Spalletti and he reaffirmed his desire to stay at Roma.
“I don’t have to talk to the player, he’s not for sale. If someone wants him they’ll have to pay the clause.”
