Anel Zulić changed his mind, the idea of going on loan did not appeal to him: Radomel defender turned down a hefty transfer to Mechelen
It was early June,
when we reported
that the transfer was about to materialise: and indeed both clubs involved had more or less agreed on everything. Belgian top-flight team Mechelen would get a talented football player from Slovenia, Radomlje a record amount; with bonuses, around 500.000 euros. But the transfer has now finally fallen into the water. The reason? Anel Zulić, a talented defensive footballer, changed his mind just before signing his contract.
As we have learnt, Anel Zulić was not too keen on the idea presented to him in the final phase of the talks by the management of Mechelen, the former club of one-time Maribor player Zeljko Filipović. Mechelen wanted to send the Slovenian teenager on loan to the Netherlands immediately after his transfer to Belgium, where he would strengthen the ranks of one of their partner clubs for a year. Clearly in the hope that Anel Zulić would play regularly in the first place, but this was a no-budget account.
The Slovenian teenager finally gave the red light for the transfer and stayed in Radomlje, and it is interesting to note that Anel Zulić has rejected the possibility of going abroad for the second time in a relatively short period of time. Some time ago, he was also invited by the
who will play in Serie A this year, but the Sardinian club had to wipe its nose after long talks.
