Dani Olmo admits summer did not go quite as planned transfer-wise. The coveted Spanish midfielder thinks the reason for that was that his current club, the Croatian Dinamo Zagreb, put too hefty a price on him, Mirror reports.
During the summer Olmo was linked with several Premier League clubs including Liverpool and Manchester United, some LaLiga clubs as well as Bayern Munich and AC Milan. However, Dinamo’s asking price of €40 million proved to be a big obstacle and suggests the club either weren’t keen on parting with him or they want to earn big bucks selling him. Either way Olmo hopes to get his chance to move to a “strong club in one of the five leagues” during the January transfer window.
The 21-year-old joined Dinamo in 2014 and renewed his contract for another four years in 2016. In June 2019 he was named the best player and the best young player in the Croatian First League for the 2018/2019 season. Olmo wants to use the opportunity to transfer to a better club, but right now he feels this will be difficult if Dinamo don’t lower their price.
“I think this price is too high. Not because I think I’m worth less, but because I play in the Croatian league, and the foreign clubs pay attention to this. […] Realistically, it’s difficult for a player in the Croatian league to reach this price.”
