The sticking point appears to have been Dinamo wanting the fee, believed to be £7m, in full immediately, rather than in instalments.
The move was expected to go through this weekend, but last night, a banner appeared outside what is thought to be Orsic's home saying ‘Orsa ostani’ - ‘Stay Orsa (his nickname) and quoting the track 'Noć je prekrasna’ by Daleka Obala, which basically means 'don’t go away from us; the darkness is all around'.
And tonight, journalist Ižak Ante Sučić of germanijak.hr (@IASucic) has tweeted a photograph of Dinamo Zagreb fans, the 'Bad Blue Boys' in the streets of Zagreb with banners and flares, again begging Orsic to stay.
There was a suggestion that the deal could be delayed by Dinamo requesting he play on Sunday in their top of the table clash with Rijeka, but I understand that doesn’t seem likely.
There are unconfirmed reports that he has already said his goodbyes to his team mates and staff this morning.
