Celtic striker Patryk Klimala has flown out to the United States to undergo a medical ahead of a permanent move to New York Red Bulls, and the Hoops could actually make a profit on his sale.
That’s according to a report from The Scottish Sun, who claim that the 22-year-old is set to pen a long-term deal with the MLS side when a visa application is granted.
Klimala’s exit imminent
Klimala was initially expected to have his medical in Austria, however, he has headed to the States instead to finalise the final stages of a transfer.
Is Klimala good enough for Celtic?
Transfer Tavern take
Reports from The Scottish Sun previously stated that the Hoops could end up recouping the £3.5m fee they paid for the striker last year.
However, their latest report now claims that Celtic may eventually be pocketing more than that figure.
If that is the case, we see a deal as a no brainer. Klimala, who Callum McGregor said looked ‘really strong’ prior to the start of the season, has never put in the consistent displays of a big-money signing.
He’s been the club’s worst Scottish Premiership performer this season for players who have made more than three appearances, as per WhoScored.
Klimala has averaged a match rating of just 6.36/10, so we can’t blame the Hoops for cashing in on the forward at this moment in time.
