Real Madrid and Manchester City are reportedly interested in 16-year-old Croatian defensive sensation Luka Vuskovic.

Christian Falk has told Caught Offside that Real Madrid and Manchester City are among the clubs keen on Luka Vuskovic. The two European bigwigs are monitoring the 16-year-old’s progress at Hajduk Split. Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, and AC Milan are also tracking the teenage defensive sensation.

Luka Vuskovic is the latest prospect to emerge in his homeland as Croatian fans look for the next generation of world beaters. With Luka Modric approaching the end of his glittering career, the nation’s supporters are looking towards the future. And with Josko Gvardiol already promising a bright upcoming decade, a new defensive sensation is rising in stature.

Vuskovic is the son of former Croatian defender Daniel Vuskovic. And like fellow teenage prodigy Roko Simic, the 16-year-old has many admirers in Croatia. Meanwhile, the player is already displaying quality beyond his years, as he currently plies his trade for Hajduk Split under-19. And his potential has captured the attention of Real Madrid and Manchester City.

Real Madrid and Manchester City are also interested in signing Croatian defender Josko Gvardiol, who has become a hot property in the market. And his compatriot has now emerged on the two European bigwigs’ radars. Meanwhile, Vuskovic recently became the youngest-ever debutant in Croatian top-flight history, starting the game against Dinamo Zagreb last month.

Real Madrid might have to enter the market for a centre-back in the summer transfer window. That is because Nacho’s long-term future is up in the air amid barely progressing contract renewal talks. In addition, David Alaba is on the wrong side of 30 while struggling with fitness issues this season. And signing someone like Vuskovic might be an ideal move for Real Madrid.

On the other hand, Manchester City might part ways with Aymeric Laporte, who recently emerged on Real Madrid’s radar. And signing a potentially long-term solution will serve the Premier League champions well. The 16-year-old Croatian defensive sensation is thus an option worth cosidering.

Apart from Real Madrid and Manchester City, Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, and AC Milan are also tracking Vuskovic. And it will be interesting to see if more high-profile clubs join the race to sign the 16-year-old.
