And then Celtic Glasgow showed up, putting three million euros on the table.
The Croatian has quickly become an important player for Celtic, as evidenced by rumors of a possible transfer to Manchester United as early as November. And a few days ago, ‘Scottish Sun Sport’ reported that Juranovic could travel to Barcelona in winter.y, where he would replace Hector Bellerin, who does not meet expectations. It turns out that Italian clubs are also getting into the game.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the king of transfer news, Torino have already started negotiations with the Scottish club, and Roma are also watching the Croatian closely. Coach Jose Mourinho is likely to bid farewell to right winger Rick Karsdorp this winter. The Dutchman is also played by the representative of Poland – Nicola Zalewski.
