Celtic defenderJosip Juranovicreportedly is paying attention to Atletico Madrid as Diego Simeone wants an upgrade on the right back. increase. And it's not exactly a mystery why one of Liga's top dogs seems to be enthusiastic about Croats after a tough season for national clubs.
Juranovic arrived from Legia Warszawa a year ago and was the key man forAnge Postecogloulast season, filling both sides of the back 4. He was well suited to the Australian relentless playing style and admitted that playing under him took his international career to another level.
This is the latest international when Juranovich was one of the two players playing every minute under Zlatko Dalić and the other was star Inter MF Marcelo Brozović. It was obvious at the break. Similar to his dual role in Celtic, he played in both right-back and left-back, and its diversity was considered a major asset in the international scene. ..
One of the victims of Juranovic's recent emergence wasAtleticodefender Šime Vrsaliko. Previously a regular in his country with over 50 caps, he played to 30-year-old Juranovic's 360 in just 45 minutes.
Vrsaliko is currently the only senior natural lightback in Atletico's book, but it is becoming increasingly unreliable due to its shape and injury. He lost his team position to Marcos Llorente at the end of last season and the midfielder lost his position in the right wingback.
Therefore, according toSky Sports, Atletico is easy to look at the very man who is currently keeping Vrsaliko out of the Croatian team. Celtic, however, isn't in a hurry to sell the 26-year-old just a year after signing him.
He has a contract until 2026, so he will need a big offer to seduce him from the Liga batter. Juranovic played 35 times in the hoop last season and scored impressive five goals from his full-back position.
