Croatian Scoring King to Bordeaux?

NK Zagreb striker Ivica Olic has revealed that Championnat giants Bordeaux are hoping to sign him for next season.

"The transfer fee is £6 million and I would get around £800,000 a year," said the Croatia star, who has stormed to the top of the league goalscoring charts this season after joining Zagreb from Marsonia.

He has already turned down a bid from Juventus, but revealed on Tuesday that he had met members of a management team owned by Jean-Maria Cantona, the brother of former Manchester United star Eric, and is prepared to join Bordeaux.

Olic's agent Dragan Maric said: "We talked with the French and they said Bordeaux were ready to sign the player, although nothing has been signed yet. Jean Marie Cantona will come to Zagreb on May 4 to watch Zagreb's game against Kamen Ingrad.

"A lot of Italian clubs have called me, but they haven't come up with any concrete offers. What Bordeaux are offering is close to what we asked for when Juventus were interested in the player."

Bordeux have had a disappointing season in France, despite lifting the League Cup at the weekend by beating Lorient in the final. They are expected to lose star forward Pauleta in the summer.

I hope Bordeaux signs this striker......I think he would fit perfect in the french league. He leads the Croatian scoring table with 20 goals in 27 games. And he scored his first NT goal last week in his second game for the Croatian NT.

JEAN-MARIE CANTONA? has Eric 2 brothers?:)
I only know of JOËL CANTONA!

well this croate can be a good weapon for Bordeaux, they should not sign swede Osmanovski (he is not that good).

maybe Bordeaux can play with ----OLIC------PAULETA---

a good attacking force isn it?
I also read this on onefootball so maybe we shouldn't jump the gun just yet, not the mot reliable source;)

If it is true it's great, I think Olic could do very well in France. If Pauleta leaves however, those are big shoes to fill. Hopefully Olic can do it!
