Premier League duo target Dinamo Zagreb starlet
Manchester United and Chelsea are set to battle it out for another Dinamo Zagreb teenage star in the shape of forward Robert Muri?, according to Croatian daily newspaper Jutarnji list.
With the race for Alen Halilovic’s signature continuing to ramble on, the Premier League duo are set to turn their attentions to his teammate Muric by offering the club £6m for his services.
Muri? is described as a “the sensation of all scouts from the most powerful European clubs,” and the paper tip him to be “the first Croat to Old Trafford”. It was also hinted that the player would not be in the Croatian capital next season.
However, despite the hype, Muric has yet to make a first team appearance for the Dinamo first team, although he did play, and impress, in his country’s under-17 World Cup earlier on in the year that saw him bag one goal as Croatia crashed out at the group stages.
Nothing official has come from either of the English clubs to suggest that they were there to watch the player, but Dinamo’s next generation have a lot of admirers and a number could be on their way out of the club soon.
