Young Croatian could make move to join Brazilian opponentsOscar and David Luiz are just two of Pasalic's possible new teammates
One of the players that could well be facing Brazil in this summer's World Cup is being linked with a move to Chelsea, where he would get to train every day with a few of his potential international opponents, such as Oscar and David Luiz.
Mario Pasalic is an 18 year-old Croatian midfielder, plying his trade with Hajduk Split, but has been mentioned in relation to a £3million move to West London.
According to reports in the Daily Mail, Pasalic has already been the subject of a rejected bid by Italian club Lazio as the race for his signature hots up.
Should Pasalic make Croatia's World Cup squad, he faces the unenviable task of being part of a group of players charged with the task of stopping the host nation, and hosts Brazil, in the opening game on June 12.
