The father of Alen Halilovic says the Dinamo Zagreb midfielder is excited about moving to Barcelona.

Sejad Halilovic admits, however, the deal is yet to be rubberstamped.

"Of course we're all happy, but please do not make me answer more questions because we've been told not to talk by Barcelona on the transfer until everything is closed," he told Vecernji List.

"It's a dream come true for us and Alen is very happy, also it means a lot to us and we hope to quickly fix everything with Barcelona.

"He had offers from other major European clubs, but was waiting for Barcelona."
