Croatian youngster Alen Halilovic has completed his move Barcelona from Dinamo Zagreb, signing a contract until 2019.
The move at one stage appeared in jeopardy due to the proposed transfer ban on Barcelona, one which is no longer in place at the minute.
The midfielder joins Barcelona for a reported initial fee of €2.2 million and is regarded by many as a future star of European football.
Still only 17, it may be a while before Halilovic is integrated into the first team and hinted at this when he spoke of his admiration for Barcelona B: “I’ve watched Barcelona B this season and they play very great football.”
