Red Star Belgrade have announced that they have accepted an offer from Liverpool for Marko Grujic.
That’s despite the ongoing issues with the midfielder’s father – who says that his son has been pressured into agreeing to the move by the powers that be at the club.
Red Star say that they have rejected offers from Anderlecht and VfB Stuttgart for their prize asset and have settled on the bid from the Reds “unanimously”.
They say that Grujic will remain with them on loan until the end of the season before moving to Liverpool next Summer.
“The board considered the offer and unanimously accepted the offer of the English giants. Liverpool will pay the money immediately, and the player would stay in Red Star until 01/07/2016.” a statement began.
“Red Star Belgrade in the last 10 days received three formal offer for the transfer of our player Marko Grujic, from Anderlecht – two million, of Stuttgart – five million, of Liverpool we received an offer worth seven million euros and 10 percent of the next transfer.
“All in Red Star sincerely want to see Marko Grujic playing in our uniform for the next 10 years, but the financial situation of our club dictates the adoption of a different decision.
“Marko Grujic should go to a player that continues to develop in one of the biggest clubs in the world; the club is probably the dream of every player on the planet.
“We are convinced, just like the people from Liverpool, Marko Grujic has the quality for a great club and that in England he can make a great career.” it finished.
