Josip Juranovic nears Celtic exit in £10m deal

Celtic have agreed to sell Josip Juranovic to Bundesliga outfit Union Berlin. The 27-year-old has been given permission to travel to the German capital in order to seal a deal.

Sky Sports and Fabrizio Romano have been updating supporters regarding the right-back’s future and it appears that the impressive defender will leave Celtic shortly.

The Croatian Internationalist joined Celtic from Legia Warsaw in the summer of 2021 for just £2.5m but now it appears that his time with the Scottish Champions is coming to an end.

It appears that the Bundesliga side will seal the signature of Juranovic for a reported fee worth up to £10m. The transfer will result in an up front fee of £7.5m with £2.5m in add-ons.

Juranovic has been touted with moves away since January of last year, such has been the quality of his performances. The former Legia Warsaw defender has attracted interest from England and Spain and given his impressive World Cup campaign, It seemed certain that this window would prove to be difficult to retain him.

Whilst it is sore to see better players headed for the exit, it is an inevitability that players will be sought after given Ange’s quality of play.
