Nenad Bjelica – the head coach of Dinamo Zagreb coach – has confirmed that Dani Olmo is all set to complete a move to RB Leipzig.
MilanNews.it claimed earlier today that the Spain international has left the training ground of Dinamo Zagreb in order to fly out to Leipzig and complete his move.
TMW offered more information on the terms of the agreement, claiming that the Bundesliga leaders will pay a fixed fee of €35million, with €15m in achievable bonuses, for a total of €50m – plus a 25% sell on clause in favour of the Croatian side.
Although Calciomercato.com reported that that the door is not quite closed for Milan and other interested clubs – such as Wolves and Dortmund – just yet, it appears that everything is in place for Olmo to join Leipzig.
Speaking to Croatian outlet 24sata, Nenad Bjelica confirmed that Olmo has said his goodbyes and is flying to east Germany.
“He had really good offers, he opted for Leipzig. We believe he will show his best as he did here at Dinamo,” he said (via MilanNews.it).
“He said goodbye to the team with emotion, but that’s life, we go on. We will have to do without him, we wish him the best. He said goodbye to the boys, he tried to say something but did not succeed, it was difficult.
“Leipzig is a club at the top of the Bundesliga, they are growing year after year and playing the Champions League.”
