According to Italian reports, Dinamo Zagreb almost doubled Marko Pjaca’s asking price after Milan, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund sparked a bidding war.
The winger impressed at Euro 2016 and this shop window enabled the club to vastly inflate the price-tag.
Sportitalia claim that before the tournament, Pjaca was worth €15m plus bonuses, but that now the expectation is €25m plus bonuses that will eventually reach in the region of €30m.
Napoli pulled out of negotiations for this reason, but Milan staged an intensive push for Pjaca when CEO Adriano Galliani visited his agent in Zagreb last night.
Juventus and Borussia Dortmund remain in the running, but the Rossoneri appear to have the advantage.
