It is now official- Dejan Lovren is the newest member of the Olympique Lyon family. After successfully completing a full ‘head to toe’ physical Wednesday morning in France, the 20 year old signed on the dotted line making him Lyon property for the next four and a half years. After initial reports claimed that the transfer would be for €8 million, Sportske Novosti reported that Dinamo Zagreb will collect €10 million for Lovren. This was incorrect as the transfer went through for €8 million, however, Dinamo could make another €1.5 million on bonuses through Lovren should he perform well.
LOVREN WAS ALL BUSINESS
The young Croatian defender should be ready to play for Lyon by next weekend. I couldn’t imagine seeing him rushed into the lineup days after being signed. Congratulations to Lovren on his first major career move! CSR wishes you the best as we look forward to seeing you in ‘Croatians Around Europe.’
Now the question is: Will Domagoj Vida replace Lovren at Dinamo Zagreb?
