Marko Grujic is ready to start his Liverpool career this summer after realising his “dream” of winning the title with his boyhood club Red Star Belgrade.
The 20-year-old midfielder was signed by Jürgen Klopp in a £5.1million deal back in January but insisted on remaining in his homeland on loan until the end of the campaign in order to help them clinch silverware.
Grujic achieved that target on Tuesday when Predrag Sikimic's goal secured a 1-0 win over Vozdovac and gave Red Star an unassailable nine-point lead over closest rivals Cukaricki Belgrade in the Serbian Super League.

It's a record 27th league title for Red Star and Grujic will cherish the achievement forever.
The youngster posted on his Facebook page: “Champions!!!!!!! One of my dreams has come true.
“A title with the greatest club in the world. I love these people. Thank you!”
It was Red Star's third title since Serbia became an independent nation in 2006. They won 19 in the former Yugoslavia and five in its successor, the state union of Serbia and Montenegro.
Red Star currently have to play their home games behind closed doors after being hit with a three-game crowd ban following fan violence in last month's derby with bitter city rivals Partizan.
Grujic, who became the first signing of Klopp's Anfield reign, will link up with the Liverpool squad for the start of pre-season training in early July
