Croatian Star Alen Halilovic Has Been Sold to Hamburg

Hamburg, Germany – Young Croatian international Alen Halilovic has been sold to Bundesliga club Hamburg from Barcelona for 5 million on a four-year-contract.

The Catalan club has a 10 million euros buyback clause on the first year, 12.5 million euros on the second.

The 20-year-old midfielder spent last season on-loan at Sporting Gijon making 36 appearances and scoring three goals.

Hamburg want to strengthen their squad with the new wave of investment that has come their way and in addition to Halilovic, the German club are also thinking of signing Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle United and Olympique Marseille’s Georges-Kevin N’Koudou.

Halilovic moved to Barcelona for five million euros from Dynamo Zagreb on July 2014 and has made just one appearance for the Catalan club during his time at the Camp Nou.
