Halilovic completes Barca switch

Alen Halilovic has completed his move from Dinamo Zagreb to Barcelona, calling the Blaugrana ‘the biggest club in the world’.

The 17-year-old playmaker has joined the Catalan giants for €2.2m, but will initially play for the ‘B’ team before hopefully making the step up.

“This is a great day and I am very happy,” he told reporters.

“I have always been a Barca fan and I know a lot about the club. I have been watching Barca B this season – they are a young team who play great football.

“I can speak a little Catalan. I’m very happy to have been given the chance to play at the biggest club in the world. Hello to all the Barca fans and Visca el Barca!”
