Just over a week ago, media in Croatia had reported an impending deal for 20M Euro from Tottenham for Alen Halilović and Tin Jedvaj. Early this morning, news came out of Italy stating that Jedvaj was completing a physical for Roma. With the news many turned to Tottenham to see what they were going to offer Halilović. Soon after the Jedvaj news, reports also came out the the Tottenham deal seemed to be sunk. Current reports are that Halilović’s family were after a 1.2 million Euro deal along housing and schooling fees. Tottenham was not able to hit the mark, only offering 800,00 with a home. With the deal now cancelled, many are looking to other top flight clubs, like Arsenal, to reengage Dinamo to see what they can get for Halilović.
While the news may be troublesome for some Hrvati, others are happy to see the youngster potentially progress with Dinamo for a few more years. With the transfer window still wide open, do you think both youngsters will still sign with big clubs or wait it out for another year?
Update: Jedvaj to Roma for 5M Euros. More details to come.
