Josip Juranovic has crashed out of the World Cup with Croatia after another Messi masterclass.

The Celtic defender has had a top tournament, but the semi final was a bridge too far for Josip and his Croatian teammates.

Argentina progress to the World Cup final while Croatia will now gear up for a third place play-off against either France or Morocco.

Juranovic will still be with the Croatian camp until the weekend, but we expect more movement on the defender’s future now that the high stakes of the World Cup have been taken out of the equation.

Juranovic’s Celtic future has been a source of a lot of speculation in Scotland. However, the player made it clear he wasn’t going to entertain any of it until after the World Cup [Mail Sport]. We suspect the third place playoff won’t be enough to keep Juranovic off the phone to his agent.

The window doesn’t open until January. Considering Celtic have already signed another right back in Alistair Johnston we’d expect more solid speculation and a more concrete figure Celtic are looking to get for Josip.

It’s no guarantee Celtic will sell Josip in January, but I’d personally be surprised if the Croatian was still a Celtic player come Feb 1st.

Celtic has Juranovic tied up until 2026. You have to think the bhoys are looking at a hefty offer.


  1. He doesn’t want to be here, we put him on a stage that made people sit up and notice him. He used us as a stepping stone, so use him to get £15 – £25 million so Ange can buy the £8 million players he was talking about (after we were knocked out of the champions league) that can take us to the next level in Europe!

    • Juranovic is far too good nobin a bigger league.
      He has consistently performed at a high level for
      He can’t be blamed for wanting more than Scottish football can offer, especially with the corruption within the sfa.

    • Are you him or his wife or his parents or his friend or his agent?

      If none of these, I’d like to know where you are getting your info from.

      One thing I would say, don’t believe everything you read in sites that are after clicks.
