How Celtic Will Benefit From The Transfer Of 2 Time Champions League Winner: Sign Him Up Brendan!

In the last decade, we saw two superhumans Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo breaking records for fun but how often do we see someone break a record made by these two superstars? Well, there are a few instances. One such record-breaker is Bojan Krkic who broke Lionel Messi’s record of being youngest ever debutant for Barcelona when he was just 17 years and 19 days old. That was a long back and Bojan’s career did not go as many would have thought.

A graduate of the famed La Masia, arguably the best football academy in the world, Bojan failed to make the grade at Barcelona and now plying his trade for Premier League mid-table club Stoke City. From Barcelona to Roma, then to Milan, then to Ajax and then Stoke City- it would been an incredible career for the Spaniard if it was the other way round but that’s the way it is which is why I always say that potential is a very overrated word.

Well, Bojan is not particularly a key player at Stoke City too and we saw him facing the wrath of manager Mark Hughes after his woeful performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup on last Saturday. There are rumours that the once-promising Spanish forward could be on his way out of the Bet365 Stadium and Middlesbrough have already entered the fray for a raid on the Potters.

Well, this could be an ideal opportunity for Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers to add proven Champions League experience to his squad. The 26-year-old has plenty to prove at the big level and needs a manager who trusts him. Celtic should be in the Champions League next season once again and have to answer their doubters too. Bojan moving to Celtic could be a marriage made in heaven.

It is a fact that Bojan has failed to do justice to his immense potential but still only 26, age is on his side. He still remains a player with plenty of quality and much ahead of his age in terms of experience. He is a two-time Champions League winner with Barcelona and has won a slew of silverwares during his career. The Spaniard has been very unlucky with injuries over the years, otherwise, he could have been a superstar.

Bojan is a versatile player who can play as a number nine, number ten and on either flank. A deadly finisher and someone who can unlock a tight defence with his exceptional eye for a pass- he represents a rare breed of footballers. In Bojan, Celtic will get a player who will make a big impact both on and off the pitch. It’s up to them that they show the intent or not. Bojan, the player who could finally make Celtic competitive in European competitions again.

However, will the finances add up?
