Dinamo Zagreb chief Zdvrako Mamic insists Alen Halilovic's star is still shining.

There has been doubts about the talented teen's development this season after he turned down an August move to Tottenham.

But Mamic revealed to Croatia Weekly: "Here is the evidence regarding our jewel and 'son' Alen. I have the original contracts between Dinamo and Tottenham where the club had received €13 million and €6 million went to the player, but he was not ready for that step.

"There is also a written bid from FC Barcelona for €15 million depending on Alen's performances, which we turned down, and over the past six months, Zoran (Mamic, Dinamo coach) negotiated with Bayern Munich and Inter Milan for Alen."
