Pete O’Rourke warns Celtic to be ‘realistic’ about stars price tag

So what’s it to be for Josip Juranovic?

£10m? £15m? £20m+?

For a World Cup finalist, you can be damned sure that e should be expecting top dollar for him because the Croatian has now proven that he can cut it at the highest level.

And you know what else is great? No longer can pundits and reporters from down south look down on our game as some kind of footballing backwater after the performances of not only the Croatian, but also Daizen Maeda, Aaron Mooy and Cameron Carter-Vickers.

They have done our game and our club proud.

So when it comes to valuations, you would imagine that these guys have added another few million to their price tad right?

Possibly not according to journalist, Pete O’Rourke.

Speaking to GiveMeSport via MSN News, O’Rourke said, “If he really is looking to leave then it might have to be pushed ahead now and set the bar as high as you feel you possibly can and be realistic about what the player is worth.”

Realistic? Let me see. 27 years old. In his prime.

Champions League experience.

Scottish Champion.

World Cup semi finalist. How realistic does he want us to be?

I say £20m. Minumum. Get some add ons in there as well because when you see some of the dross that gets sold in England for double that, at least you know with Josip, you are getting a quality player.
