Manchester United, Manchester City and Real Madrid are said to be most interested in hot prospect’s services.
Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson could be about to trump Man City boss Roberto Mancini by signing two of his top targets. United Chief Executive David Gill flew to Croatia this week for talks about signing £15m-rated Alen Halilovic, 16, and he also enquired about 20-year-old right-back Sime Vrsaljko.
Manchester City are prepared to spend £7m to sign 16-year-old attacking midfielder Alen Halilovic, widely regarded as the best in the world of his age, from Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb.
Real Madrid are pushing for the signature of teenage Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Alen Halilovic. The Croatian, 16, is already being compared to Luka Modric – who was a United target before moving from Tottenham to the La Liga giants.
