City to sign Croatian youngster from Dinamo Zagreb.
Manchester City are looking to sign teen Croatian sensation Alen Halilovic. A three man delegation from the Premier League giants travelled to Croatia this week to negotiate with Dinamo Zagreb over the 16-year-old, reports Daily Mail.
Halilovic, who is already being touted as ‘the next Luka Modric’, has recently been allowed to train with Real Madrid and has attracted the interest of several teams around Europe, including Barcelona and Manchester United.
In order to beat their European rivals to the youngster’s signature, City have offered Croatian outfit £6million but Zagreb believe they can make much more on the youngster in the future and may only agree a transfer layered with future sell-on clauses.
The young midfielder, who turned professional in June, has already made history for Dinamo Zagreb, becoming the club’s youngest debutant, youngest goalscorer and youngest ever player to feature in a Champions League.
