Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Alen Halilovic has played down talk of a move to Italy.

Juventus are being linked with the Croatian teen, whose contract expires in June.

"I have never spoken with Juventus and not even with Inter Milan. For these things," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport, "you need to ask my father and Zdravko Mamic.

"My favourite team? I remember Modric said Barcelona, and then finished at Real. I do not want to say it, because maybe I tell you and then I'll sign for another.

"I like English and Spanish football, it is true that in the summer I was very close to a foreign club, but I cannot reveal which one."
