With his languid style, ability to pick out a pass and knack for scoring goals in big games, Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic is set to be a key man for Australia in the upcoming World Cup.
Indeed, such is the ability that Rogic has, that France manager Didier Deschamps has identified the playmaker as a dangerman before the teams meet in Russia, with the Evening Times reporting that Deschamps is ‘concerned’ about facing a player of Rogic’s quality.
You would have to imagine that if the 25-year-old playmaker impresses against France, one of the favourites for the World Cup, then teams would take notice of Rogic.
Indeed, it would not be a shock if bids came in for the player from interested parties.
The good thing for the Hoops though, is that when it comes to Rogic, they hold all the aces.
Rogic signed a new long-term deal with the Hoops only one month ago, which should stop any clubs from seriously bidding for the player, no matter how well he does in the World Cup.
Of course, if a club wanted to bid something like £10million for Rogic on the back of a successful World Cup, then perhaps the Hoops would have to consider selling him for that amount of cash.
But the new deal seems to ensure that Rogic will return to the Hoops next season, no matter how well he performs for Australia in Russia.
