Josko Gvardiol could become the most expensive defender in the history of soccer. After the 2022 World Cup, European giants will fight for the Croatian’s signature.
Croatian youngsters are making waves at the World Cup being played in Qatar. Zlatko Dalic’s charges still haven’t suffered a defeat at this year’s World Cup, and in addition, they won two matches in the knockout stage after a series of penalty kicks.
Josko Gvardiol has earned the distinction in recent matches. Each time, the 20-year-old plays from the backboard and forms a harmonious duo with the more experienced Dejan Lovren in the defensive midfield.
The gifted stopper will most likely not get a place at RB Leipzig for long. The Croatian can run through transfer offers.
According to journalist Santi Aouna, Manchester City is able to pay €100 million for Gvardiol. The club from the Red Bull Arena could earn even more after certain conditions are met.
The current English champions intend to outbid Manchester United and London’s Chelsea FC. In addition, the Croatian representative’s name is on Bayern Munich’s wish list.
