It’s no secret that Dinamo Zagreb have been in “sale mode” all summer long: Šutalo, Livaković, Ivanušec all gone. With money coming in and talent heading out, the million dollar question on everyone’s mind is: just how will Dinamo allocate their new resources? Dinamo have opted to pocket their new found riches and take the loan approach; bringing in 19 year-old winger Gabriel Vidović. With key veterans who helped build Dinamo over the past half decade all heading out the door, what can this youngster do for Dinamo? The answer: ALOT.
Vidović hails from the academy of German giants Bayern Munich, where he cracked into their second team in 2021, recording 33 appearances and 21 goals. These numbers attracted the interests of the first team, when in 2022, he made four appearances before being loaned out to Vitesse in the Dutch Eredivisie. Vidović returns to Croatia this time for club duties as Dinamo sealed the loan deal alongside an option to buy once the term runs out. Dinamo have fostered the likes of many youth talents over the years. If Bayern are not ready for him to clock minutes for them, this could be a great season for Vifović to show his caliber in Croatia on the domestic stage. After a subpar U-21 Euro tournament, Vidović is ready to show the Croatian media what he can bring to the table, especially in a year where Dinamo’s dominance has never looked more uncertain. While this young talent joining the ranks of Dinamo is a massive addition to the club and league as a whole, Dinamo still look like they will have to make a few more move to keep us this year.
