    Manchester United have offered 40 million euro to sign him, he was one of the highly Spanish rated midfielders who went through Barcelona academy. He can offer us more versatile roles to play in 3 midfield, false 9, on both wings or attacking midfielders.

    The Croatian sports media version of BBC sport in term of reliability has reported this as well in Croatia.

    Heard good things about him. Went back to Croatia as he was promised game time and that they would develop him into a star and then sell him to a top European club.

    He was a man of the match in U21 Euro final, the likes of AWB, Maddison, Aouar, Barela, Soler, Jovic, Guendouzi, Kean played in this tournament. He was one of the best players in the competition even though Fuiz won the player of the tournament.

    Looks like he played on the right for the majority of the tournament for Spain. Would be well up for this signing, he looks really good.

    I like him a lot. That whole Spain team looked pretty superior in their passing and technical ability all over the pitch. He was one of the standouts, but they had quite a few tasty players. The other very tasty player I noticed was Italy's Chiesa, and of course, that German kid who scored a bunch of goals.

    I remember some Zagreb fans did a sort of write up a while back about their team on Reddit and they were raving about this kid. They were convinced he was destined for the big time.

    This will be one of those quick come and go summer transfer rumours.
    He'll probably end up at some mid table Italian club.

    Even if true, which it probably isn’t I don’t want this. He’ll take a couple years to develop and by then, if he’s any good the big Spanish clubs will come sniffing and he’ll be off.

    He looks fantastic on the YouTubes.

    There is that worry with the Spanish/South American players players but then again, if he's good enough for Madrid or Barcelona he's going to be very special. And given the market there's no guarantee they can actually but him off us. And even if they do they'd have to pay us a huge fee. Also teams like City have somehow managed to keep Aguero and Silva despite them being played a who should ideally idslly want that move too so there's something they've done right which we can heed from.

    Understand the concern though. We don't want to spend 2 years making a star only for him to want to leave at the drop of a hat. Think we can protect ourselves in those situations by sorting out transfers better. Obviously the player actually had to be good enough for any of the above to be relevant. Really now he's just a young talent.

    Remember watching him a few months back and thinking ‘this kid is skinny’.

    Hard to really tell with a player at Zagreb, and I didn’t watch much of the 21s this summer.

    Weren't we linked with him last year along with AC Milan?

    Anyways, it's good to hear that we are being linked with a right wing #7.

    Football Manager legend so I’m all for it.

    I actually like the idea of buying the obscure that might turn out to be great in the right circumstances.

    No deal is a guarantee [Sanchez says hello] so I’m all for this strategy.

    Bit odd. Seems to mostly play in Pogba’s position, but also looks like a winger!

    Just seen a YouTube video of him, kid looks good. Reminds me of Isco. Where would play in our team? Is he what we always hoped Mata would be for us?

    Averaged 4 shots per game for Spain u21s, Spain's most and the 4th most at the tournament. 2 key passes, Spain's 3rd most there.

    £35 million for one of the top 3 performers in Spain's u21 tournament win? I guess its not that unreasonable but I wonder how much Ceballos is worth then.

    At this moment he is better than Joao Felix and I'm prepared to die defending that! :D

    I have so much to tell you about 3D (aka Danz, Danz, Danz) based on the videos I have seen on YT. Fantastic passing, amazing assists and whenever he shoots, he never misses. Out of this world.

    Another must get Woodward!

    Fyi. There are an amazing number of fantastic players on Youtube. Who needs a scouting system when the players are a click away.

    I once said we need to scout some of the talented players out there who are perhaps not that well known. We are doing that alright. Makes me uncomfortable though.

    Number 10 primarily, although he did play almost all positions in midfield for Dinamo and Spain U21.

    Speaking of Spain’s top performers, I’d certainly look into Fabian Ruiz if Pogba leaves ;)

    He has a very good passing range and can score from distance with both feet.

    Would be a really good transfer. Can play as a winger, number 10 and even in midfield. Concern would be that he would like to go back to Barcelona in a few years. Did really well at Dinamo and as much as I'd be sad to see him leave on the other hand I'd be happy to see him at United if possible.

    Don't believe SN though, they basically copy news from all around.

    As this story is coming out of Croatia this is either true or an agent trying to gain exposure for his player, either way at that price in the current market for a player with lots of 1st team experience albeit in a different league then it has got to be worth it (based purely on extensive YT research of course)
