Manchester City have reportedly made a €12million bid for Croatian wonderkid Luka Vuskovic as they pursue a transfer deal.
The offer has not yet been accepted or rejected by Vuskovic’s club Hajduk Split, according to a report from The Athletic, so it remains to be seen whether or not City can get this exciting signing done.
The Athletic suggest there is already plenty of competition for Vuskovic’s signature, so it won’t necessarily be easy for City to persuade him to pick the Etihad Stadium over other destinations.
While City are a dominant force in the Premier League, they wouldn’t necessarily stand out as the best move for a 16-year-old, who will want to see a pathway to first-team football very soon.
There is always fierce competition for places in Pep Guardiola’s squad, so Vuskovic might do well to think about more of a stepping stone club before perhaps taking the chance to go somewhere like City later on.
Christian Falk previously reported on City’s interest in Vuskovic in his CaughtOffside column, also naming the likes of Real Madrid and AC Milan as suitors for the teenager.
