Dinamo Zagreb boss Nenad Bjelica admits that Barcelona and Manchester United target Dani Olmo will join a big club soon.

Olmo is one of the hottest young footballing commodities on the market right now.

While Europe’s elite have been keeping tabs on his progress over the years, he really shot to prominence this past summer.

The 21-year-old Spain U21 star was a key player in Spain’s U21 Europeanchampionsip winning side.

Olmo even got on the score sheet in the final.

He is having a great season in Croatia too, scoring six goals in 15 games so far, as Zagreb sits at the top of their domestic league.

While Barca and United have been the most active clubs displaying interest in him.

His current manager, however, insists there are a host of clubs with offers on the table, and it is only a matter of time before he makes the move to the big leagues.

Speaking 24sata, Bjelica has been impressed by both the player and the man Olmo has become.

He said:

“Dani is impressive both as a footballer and as a person.”

“He’s very modest and ambitious at the same time. He wants to learn every day and I’m proud to have him on the team.”

He insists the player is ready to step up and take one of gthe many offers already in front of him.

He added:

“There are so many offers.”

“In the end, the club and the player will decide together what is best for both sides. He is ready to play for the best clubs in Europe.”

United are believed to be one of the front runners and set to follow up initial interest from the summer.

Although the player himself has expressed concern at the price tag Dinamo Zagreb is putting on him.
