He has been discussing the possibility given Vlasic was the RPL’s Footballer of the Year award back in 2020.

Discussing the possibility he said: “Nikola has great memories of Russia, So of course a return is possible. In football, you never know for sure.

“Of course, playing for CSKA was incredible both for Vlasic and for our entire family,” adds Josko Vlasic, the 25-year-old’s father. “This is (a key) part of his career. We will always remember this time.  

“Can Nikola return to CSKA one day? Who knows. Nobody knows what might happen in the future.” 

Torino hold all the cards as things stand, however. According to Tuttosport, Vlasic could sign a long-term deal until the summer of 2027 at Juventus’ near neighbours.
