According to Sky Sports, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid were interested in bringing Juranovic to Spain during the current transfer window, whilst two clubs in England were also weighing up a move.
One of those is suspected to be Man United after Tuttomercatoweb reported that United were interested in Juranovic’s signature but the biggest challenge for the Red Devils would be convincing the 27-year-old to join as back-up to Diogo Dalot.
Nevertheless, the Celtic star is on the move to Germany and will be looking to kick on again following his impressive World Cup campaign in Qatar.
