Dinamo Zagreb starlet Mateo Kovacic insists that he is not in a desperate hurry to leave Croatia.

The 17-year-old is already a regular in Dinamo's side and has even captained them.

The Austrian-born Croatian Under-21 international was previously the subject of a bid from Arsenal last year, along with team-mate Sime Vrsaljko.

Now the likes of Manchester United and Juventus are also been linked, but Kovacic insists he is more than happy to continue his education in Zagreb.

"There are many talks, every footballer is dreaming of playing for one of the best clubs in the world but I'm not really bothered what is going on in press," he told SportskeNovosti.

"There are many rumours, but I'm happy to stay at Dinamo.

"I'm still young and I still have to learn before I will be ready to move on.

"It is nice to see your name linked with clubs such as Juventus and Manchester United, but I'm quite calm. My time will come sooner or later."
