Speaking to Yahoo Sport FR, Montpellier President Laurent Nicollin announced the club’s decision to abandon a deal for 24-year-old Croatian international goalkeeper Dominik Livaković, despite having agreed a fee with his club Dinamo Zagreb.
“We are not waiting until 25th August. We have an agreement over a fee. But the player has not been authorised to travel to us for his medical and to sign. We are going to go after someone else. We cannot wait for him to play another round of Champions’ League games, next week and then the week after. We have other options. The first one who can come is the one we will take.”
MHSC were set to break their transfer record with Livaković, having agreed a deal worth around €9.5m.
