Croatian defender Vedran Ćorluka is set to be making a summer move to German champions Bayern Munich, Russian media are reporting…

Ćorluka (30) was linked with Bayern Munich before EURO 2016 and after impressive performances in France it looks as if the Croatian will be leaving Lokomotiv Moscow for Munich in the summer.

Russian media report that Lokomotiv Moscow will make 7 million euros from the Ćorluka deal. Lokomotiv Moscow bought Ćorluka from Tottenham Hotspur in 2012 for 5 million euros and he came to the club along with coach Slaven Bilić.

Artur Petrosyan, who is Editor-in-chief of Sport-Express.ru, tweeted that Ćorluka is one of two Russian Premier League players to leave in the summer.

Ćorluka has represented Croatia 90 times and made history at EURO 2016 in France when he became the first player to play an international in a water polo cap.
