He was linked to Leeds United and Celtic in the transfer window.
It's probably safe to say that Mario Pasalic isn't regretting that he didn't get a move to Leeds United or Celtic in the summer.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Leeds were interested in signing the Chelsea midfielder on loan, whlie ABC Sevilla reported that Celtic were also keen in bringing him to Parkhead during the off season.
The 22-year-old, who signed a four-year deal at the Blues, ended up at Spartak Moscow and regular football - including in the Champions League - and a couple of goals mean that he's probably pretty happy with his move.
Pasalic has scored twice in six league starts for the Russian outfit - including one in the 2-1 defeat by bitter cross-city rivals CSKA which enhanced his reputation among fans.
In addition to that, the young midfielder has also started both of their Champions Legaue outings and played a big role in helping them earn a 1-1 draw with Premier League outfit Liverpool last week.
Based on his talent, he'd probably be playing regularly at Celtic and Leeds as well but it does not appear as if either club have really missed someone of his ilk so far.
The Whites have an abundance of talented midfielders, as do Brendan Rodgers's side who boast the likes of Callum McGregor, Stuart Armstrong, Scott Brown, Olivier Ntcham and Tom Rogic.
He has been named in the Croatia squad for upcoming World Cup qualifiers with Finland and Ukraine ahead of what could be a first cap in over two years.
