Euro Football Rumours
It would take a huge offer from Manchester City to prise the 16-year-old centre-back from Hajduk.
The Croatian giants would be wise to keep the 16-year-old, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.
Good signing for Manchester City?
If Manchester City and Pep Guardiola are seriously considering a young centre-back, Vuskovic could also prove to be a smart option.
Luka Vuskovic has all the skillset required to be a success story at Etihad Stadium. Therefore, it makes sense for Pep Guardiola to step up his attempts to bring the Croatian centre-back to Premier League side.
Will Luka Vuskovic be a Manchester City player soon? Only time will tell.
