Chelsea ready to pay £15m for Croatian defender

Celtic defender Josip Juranovic is
attracting the attention of Chelsea and
Man Utd and could be available for as
little as £15m, according to the latest
reports.
The 26-year-old full-back has only
moved to Glasgow last year, signing for
Celtic from Legia Warsaw for just £2.5m
and has quickly impressed in Scotland.
Juranovic has 20 caps for Croatia
national team and has played on both
sides of defence at full-back, as well as
taking penalties for Celtic last campaign,
founding back of the net five times in all
competitions.
90min report that Man Utd and Chelsea
have been paying attention to his
progress and are looking at the Croatian
defender as an addition to their teams
this summer.
The West London giants have Reece
James as first choice on the right of
their backline, while Cesar Azpilicueta
has remained at the club despite
rumours with Barcelona, so they are not
desperate for a right-back, however,
would like cover.
The Red Devils are playing Diogo Dalot at
right-back, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka is
likely to make a return to Crystal Palace.
Juranovic is being considered by both
the West London giants and the Red
Devils, while Atletico Madrid have also
been credited with an interest in his
services.
Responding to reported interest from the
La Liga giants, the defender told RTL: ‘I
hope there was something in the stories,
but honestly I didn’t even ask our
manager or anything about it. I didn’t
care.
‘I have to keep my feet firmly on the
ground. It was Atletico Madrid after all,
but I’m at a big club already, Celtic.
‘Finally I have the chance to play in the
Champions League here. Just to hear the
atmosphere, that anthem and to get to
play on that stage.’
