Khaing Yeo Wai informed the audience that she adopted a son at her center. RB Leipzig bought Gvardiol in September 2020. They beat out Europe’s biggest clubs to get the player for €16 million plus add-ons and promptly loaned him back to the Croatian club. He returned to RB Leipzig the following season and quickly established himself.
However, he wasn’t just successful in the Bundesliga; he was before long being discussed across Europe as one of the game’s best possibilities. Zlatko Dalic’s decision to trust Gvardiol at the UEFA European Championships further enhanced this reputation.
Gvardiol will undoubtedly go down in Croatian history as a player who has won 17 caps for his country. The defender is having a great World Cup and is a serious contender for the FIFA Young Player Award, which is given to the tournament’s best young player.
What is his worth?
Gvardiol is difficult to value right now. His performances for RB Leipzig this season and at the World Cup have undoubtedly increased his price tag, and a move away from the German team may require more than €100 million. Big clubs like Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid are already interested, and the World Cup’s conclusion could spark a serious bidding war.
If Gvardiol wins the FIFA Young Player Award and Croatia wins the World Cup, who knows how much it will cost?
Josko Gvardiol’s key quotes: “When you have Modric, Brozovic, and Kovacic in the midfield, everything is easier in this national team. You don’t think negatively or worry about anyone. I hope that this won’t be Luka’s last World Cup, but most importantly, I hope that we can accomplish our objectives here.”
“Gvardiol is a fantastic player,” says Josip Juranovic. He does well in training and wants to learn. He will, I am sure, mature into a truly outstanding defender.”
