Josip Brekalo leaving Hajduk Split?

It is hard to believe that Brekalo could be retained under the current circumstances (allegedly a fee greater than 100,000 euros per month). However, it is questionable under what conditions Fiorentina would accept his stay at Poljud.

Brekalo arrived at Hajduk in January with the aim of winning the title and impressing Zlatko Dalić for the Euro. He was born in Zagreb and started his career at Dinamo. He was close to returning to his home club, but due to a series of misunderstandings and clumsy reactions from Dinamo's management, he ended up at Hajduk on a six-month loan. Despite some injury problems and a drastic drop in form of the Split club, Brekalo was one of Hajduk's best players and in 13 games he recorded seven assists (the most in the team) and scored one goal. Although fans may have expected more from the occasional national team member, the impression is that Brekalo was one of the few bright spots of the fallen team of Bili this half-season and in just a few games he showed why he is material for the top five leagues and the national team. However, Zlatko Dalić obviously does not think so and Brekalo will, at least according to today's list, watch the Euro from the stands or in front of small screens. Brekalo started his professional career at Dinamo. He played 11 official matches and then left for Wolfsburg for ten million euros as an 18-year-old. In the meantime, he also played for Stuttgart and Torino. He has a contract with Fiorentina until 2026, and Transfermarkt values him at 4.5 million euros.

Brekalo's loan ends at the end of the season and so far there are no signs that he will return. He could be the sixth at the 'farewell party'.

Ivanković has shared important news about the potential stay of Brekalo in Hajduk. He said, 'We talk a lot. I with the player and people in the club. Everyone wants him to stay and everyone is doing everything to make it happen. We will see what plans and offers he will have in the summer.'

Josip Brekalo's loan is ending, and it is possible that we will see him live for the last time unless something changes. He still hopes that he could be among the 26 players, and the fact that his manager Andy Bara was 'photographed' recently with President Ivan Bilić, opens up space for a conversation about the model by which he might stay if it is a financially viable option for Hajduk.

Josip Brekalo's stay at Hajduk is under doubt for several reasons. His loan contract with Hajduk does not include an option for contract buyout from Fiorentina. However, it is reported that Fiorentina would agree to Hajduk's request if the latter were willing to pay a certain compensation. Brekalo's intention to stay at Hajduk is unclear as he wanted to impress Zlatko Dalić, the coach of the Croatian national team, through his loan spell at Hajduk. His contract with Fiorentina is until the summer of 2026. Hajduk paid Fiorentina 100,000 euros for the loan this spring and also covered Brekalo's half-season contract worth 500,000 euros.

Josip Brekalo has collected 14 appearances in Hajduk's white jersey and recorded seven assists and one goal. In three matches that decided Hajduk's aspirations this season, he did not get a significant amount of time, so his impact on the season's outcome was very limited. He grew up in Dinamo's youth academy, and played for the senior team in 2016 when he secured a transfer to Wolfsburg for 10 million euros. After signing for the Bundesliga club, several loans followed, and he arrived in Fiorentina in 2023 for only 1.7 million euros. At the end of January, he came on loan from Fiorentina to Hajduk, although the first plan was to return to Zagreb. The move was already practically agreed, but it fell through at the last moment, and Hajduk took the opportunity to strengthen. He scored his first goal for Hajduk in the Croatian football league in the 22nd round, in a 4:0 victory over Slaven Belupo.

Brekalo ended up in Hajduk this winter in a transfer saga after his loan, which would have returned him to Dinamo, failed. His loan from Fiorentina expires at the end of the season, and his future in Italy is unknown.
