The defense attorney confirmed he pushed back a shock absorber deal to move to MLS next month

Ambitious Marijan Cabraja is aiming for a move to one of the top five European leagues after the Rangers-affiliated defender rejected a move to the MLS

The Croatian U21 international claimed earlier this year that Rangers are following him for a transfer and has been touted as a replacement for Borna Barisic in his home country

However, the 23-year-old has turned down a move to the new MLS boys Austin FC, and representative Denis Selimović confirmed he was hoping to stay with current club Girona this season

The left-back is hoping for a move at the end of the season to the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A or Ligue 1 – the typical five top European leagues

Selimović told the Croatian sports company Vecernji: “The opinion is that the player will join the senior national team in the next six months and thus an offer from the five best leagues”

“[If he switched to MLS] That it is not good for his career, that he loses the opportunity for the senior national team, that he has better chances of joining the national team from Gorica” ​​

Cabraja said he was open to other offers to leave the Croatian First Football League but was in no rush to accept the first offer and switch stateside

He said, “I spoke to my parents, then thought to myself and decided that I still wanted to stay and wait for some other offers [after Austin FC’s offer]

“There is no reason to take the first offer. I’m neither the first nor the last player to turn down an offer, and I don’t understand why there is so much panic

“The offer wasn’t bad, but financially not entirely satisfactory for me. It’s going well for me and Gorica, so I hope it continues and that it ends well in the end”
