Manchester United & Chelsea target set for summer move

Published Add your comment

Highly-rated Croatian striker Robert Muric, who is on the radar of Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham, will walk away from Dinamo Zagreb on a free at the end of the season.

The 18-year-old forward has refused to sign a contract extension with the Croatian champions and is currently training on his own at the Stadion Maksimir, according to the Guardian.

His contract expires this summer, after which the left-footed forward is expected to be snapped up by one of Europe’s top clubs. As well as the aforementioned Premier League trio, Ajax and Bayern Munich are also believed to be keen on Muric.

Muric can play off either foot, although he favours his left, and predominantly plays off the right flank - although he can play through the middle and wide-left.

He is considered the most talented youngster at Dinamo alongside Croatia international Alen Halilovic, 17, who recently secured a summer move to Barcelona for an initial €2.2m fee.

Dinamo were hoping to fetch a similar price for Muric but, as the player isn’t even training with the first-team any more, it’s almost certain they will lose him for nothing at the end of the current campaign.

While none of the interested Premier League clubs have yet spoken out publicly about their admiration for Muric, who is valued at £6m, Ajax technical director Marc Overmars hailed the teenager back in mid-February.

"Muric is wanted by many clubs - everybody wants him,” the former Netherlands international, who played for Arsenal and Barcelona, told reporters. "He really is a great talent.”
