Man United keep a close eye on 27-year-old Croatian star

Man United are interested in securing the services of Celtic defender Josip Juranovic and might test their resolve with a teasing bid. Man United are crying for a backup for Diogo Dalot and will certainly bring in someone in the winter transfer window.

Despite their failure in the UCL, Celtic have been unstoppable in the Scottish Premiership and have only lost once in their last 12 matches. Ange Postecoglou revolutionised the Bhoys as he delivered a domestic double last campaign and could replicate that as they are leading the top-flight table with four points.

Croatia international’s versatility to offer his service from both ends has made him a hot prospect and Man United did consider the idea of bringing him to Theatre of Dreams in the summer. But negotiations didn’t fall in the right place and they were robbed of an opportunity to land the footballer.

With Wan-Bissaka’s future up in the air, his departure could certainly witness the arrival of a new right back. Dalot has been involved in every match so far and Man United simply cannot risk getting him exhausted by using him excessively throughout the campaign.

The Croatian defender is expected to be called up for the World Cup and will have a chance to showcase his mettle in front of the whole world. The Croatian arrived from Legia Warsaw in the summer of 2021 for a paltry sum of £2.5m and has already proved to be a bargain buy.
