Borna Barisic, a Croatian international left back, is a target for Leeds United this month. Gary McAllister, who has been a fan of the Ibrox star for a long time, previously described Borna as having a “beautiful left foot.”
Barisic, thirty-one, has been a Rangers standout. The Croatian player has been a standout for Rangers over his nearly six years at Ibrox, starting 224 appearances for the Scottish team. winning the Cup and the Premiership without a loss.
In addition, they advanced to the Europa League final and narrowly lost to Frankfurt on penalties. Barisic is in the final six months of his contract, and his performance this season has been inconsistent. Leeds is enthusiastic.
However, the Rangers also wish to retain him. Barisic can be acquired for nothing at the end of the current campaign by non-Scottish teams by approaching him on a pre-contract basis. Barisic is also desired by teams in Serie A, La Liga, and Ligue 1.
Under Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds reportedly wants to bring Barisic to Elland Road this month. In 2020, Leeds made an £8 million bid for the midfielder. McAllister, a Leeds legend, supported Steven Gerrard at Rangers.
Borna Barisic, a new target for Leeds, is highly admired by Gary McAllister.
During the three and a half years that Gerrard managed Rangers, he collaborated with Barisic, being a part of the team that helped lead Rangers to the Premiership title — without losing a single league game in 20–21.
Speaking about Barisic and their August 2021 left-back competition against current Fulham defender Calvin Bassey, McAllister was all praise for Barisic, particularly for his left foot.
Regarding Barisic, McAllister remarked, “We have two quality full-backs: Borna, who has a beautiful left foot, and Calvin, a young guy, who has that energy going up and down the left side.”
