Barcelona Ban Does Not Affect Halilović Transfer

halilovicWednesday’s news that Spanish giants Barcelona had been banned by FIFA from making any transfers for the next two transfer windows after being found guilty of breaching transfer and registration rules, had raised question marks over whether teenager Alen Halilović would join the club in the summer from Dinamo Zagreb. Daily Jutarnji list today however, have reported that the left-footed midfielder will definitely be on his way to the Nou Camp in the summer…

“Immediately after hearing the news I personally contacted Barcelona. In speaking with the Catalan club’s bosses, I got confirmation that the ban does not affect the transfer of our player Alen Halilović. Everything is completely ok, no need to speculate, Alen is off to Barcelona in the summer as the contract has been signed and nothing now can happen, you can be assured of that,” said Dinamo Zagreb coach Zoran Mamić.

The Catalan club’s ban relates to the signings of 10 under-18 players, with the governing body confirming the ban is to do with “the international transfer of minors”.
