Ante Budimir is now a Club Atlético Osasuna player for all purposes. The club has exercised the purchase option of 8,000,000 euros agreed in the transfer contract with Real Club Deportivo Mallorca; a clause to acquire the striker in property that for the rest of the clubs was 15,000,000 euros. In turn, the Navarre club has signed a commitment with the Croatian international that will bind them until 30 June 2025. His clause will be 20,000,000 euros in LaLiga Santander and 9,000,000 euros in LaLiga SmartBank. Likewise, and as already stated in the transfer agreement signed last season, Real Club Deportivo Mallorca reserves 25% of the capital gain of a future sale.

Ante Budimir (22 July 1991; Zenica) will be able to fulfil his wish of playing with El Sadar populated by the rojillo fans. In his first season at the Navarrese club, he has had to be content with brightening the days of the Osasuna fans who followed his performances on television. His 12 goals, 11 of them in LaLiga Santander, have contributed decisively to achieving the objective of permanence with a spectacular second half of the season.

After training in the youth academy of N. K. Radnik Velika Gorica, with whom he made the leap to professional football in his country, and playing in LASK Linz in Austria, H. N. K Gorica, Inter Zaprešić, N. K. Lokomotiva, F. C. St. Pauli, F. C. Crotone and Sampdoria F. C., Budimir has exploded definitively in Spanish football. He arrived in January 2019 at Mallorca to score 6 goals in the second half of the season and was an important player in their promotion to the Primera División. Once in the top flight, he scored 13 goals for the Balearics before joining Osasuna on loan. In fact, he is one of only seven players to have scored more than ten goals in LaLiga Santander in the last two seasons, alongside Messi, Benzema, Gerard Moreno, Luis Suárez, Iago Aspas and Roger.

With this signing, Club Atlético Osasuna strengthens its sporting project with a top-level striker, who is currently training with Croatia for the European Championship. In addition to his sporting value, the footballer has demonstrated his professionalism and a resounding commitment to the Navarrese club.
