Josip Juranovic from Celtic to Union Berlin

Since the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatarone of the hottest names in the winter transfer market was Croatia international, Yuranovich. By the end of the tournament, the decision that Juranovic would leave Celtic seemed to be a foregone conclusion, with Europe’s biggest names lining up trying to lure the 27-year-old into a trap. However, the underrated right-back has taken an unexpected direction to continue his development in what could prove to be one of the trickiest moves this January.

Union Berlin bought Juranovic for less than $10 million, and at that price, it seems like an immediate deal given his permanence at Croatia and Celtic, as well as a dearth of truly quality right-back options. Not yet 30 years old, he has considerable experience given Celtic’s success under Ange Postecoglou and attempts to enter European competition. He joins a squad surprisingly keeping up with Bayern Munich at the Bundesliga summit, a good bet for European entry next season.

Union have established themselves as one of the smartest operators in Germany which itself is full of clubs with great scouting networks and eyes for talent outside the country. However, what is most impressive about this move is that the player chose Die Eisernen from a number of larger clubs that were linked with him after Croatia finished third. While many clubs were salivating If GuardiolJuranovic was flying in the background, which meant that quite a few suitors based their interest on his performances in Qatar alone.

It seems that Juranovic has identified a club that is definitely in the Union, but one where he can immediately expect to play a major role and continue his development without waiting for a chance to break into the starting XI. Urs Fischer’s men are vying for a place in the UEFA Champions League, so there’s plenty to play for, and next season could see the kind of football that bigger interested clubs could offer in the immediate aftermath of Celtic’s relegation from continental competition.

There are no guarantees in today’s transfer climate, but this looks like one of the best moments of the January business, serving both the club and the player very well on paper. Juranovic and Union will be one of the stories that will develop in the second half of the season as Union also continues to compete for both the German Cup and the UEFA Europa League. The latter will be available to watch on Paramount+ from mid-February.
