Celtic’s Croatian right back pleased most Celtic fans with his comments surrounding his future earlier today.
He was surprisingly linked with a move to Atletico Madrid a few weeks ago. Surprising because the story seemingly came out of the blue that he was ‘expected to leave Celtic this summer’, despite the plyer being only 1 season into his 5 year Celtic deal.
But not surprising in the sense that Juranovic is attracting interest from top clubs. He was brilliant for Celtic last season and is a mainstay in an excellent Croatian side and can play very comfortably at left back as well as his favoured right back position.
Here is what he said on the rumours linking him with a move to Atletico:
“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.”
Most Celtic fans took this as ‘we can end the speculation here’, but some were of course worried about his first sentence, saying that he hopes the rumours of Atletico wanting him were true.
It was a bit of a mixed message.
But he may have potentially cleared up the speculation once and for all this summer, if his latest Instagram story is anything to go by.
Is this a hint that he’ll be staying in Glasgow and at Celtic this summer?
