Teenage sensation Marko Gruijic who plies his trade for Red Star Belgrade could be swooping clubs in the nearest future. The Serbian international graduated from the Club’s academy and has become a regular for the first team.
The midfielder possesses swift passing ability and excellent ball retention skills for his age. The 19 year old player has been on the top list of many top European clubs.
The player admitted that he had heard about Chelsea from International team mate Nemanja Matic but a move could only be possible in the summer of next year, probably after the season. He added:
“Nemanja Matic is a friend, he’s Serbian and he has been at Chelsea for over a year. He tells me that they want me.” Grujic said:
“Right now I am at Red Star, we are top of the table and I want to win the title here.
“I don’t think that I’ll be moving in January, but there’s definitely more of a chance in June.”
Gruijic could be a good bargain for the club as he is young and still have many years of football left in him.
Meanwhile, the player might not come to the Blues without a fight from other Clubs as it is believed that Inter Milan assistant coach, Dejan Stankovic has tipped the young player to join the Nerazzuri.
The player confirmed the coach’s interest when he said he has spoken with Stankovic. He continued:
“He already called me three weeks ago and told me to continue like this, because Inter are following my progress.”At the end of the season I’ll be in Milan for talks. Inter are a possible destination.”
