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.
