Eduardo da Silva is currently playing with Shakhtar Donetsk, but he is widely known for his spell with Dinamo Zagreb.
He played with the Ukrainian outfit for a period of six years from 2001 to 2007. He went straight from Dinamo Zagreb to Arsenal where he enjoyed a few years as one of the best strikers at the club. Unfortunately, the Brazil born Croatian forward was not able to take his Arsenal career to the next level as it was cut short by injuries.
A horrific leg break tackle resulted in Eduardo spending a long time on the sidelines and he never truly recovered his career at Arsenal since then.
After a couple of months back and forth in the European leagues, Eduardo da Silva seems to have found a settled home at Shakhtar Donetsk. However, the 33-year-old could be once again on the move since his contract with the Ukrainian outfit is coming to an end in the summer. It is looking highly unlikely that the contract will be renewed and it has sparked rumours of a potential return to Dinamo Zagreb for Eduardo.
The player has surprisingly not ruled out such a transfer says that he owes a lot to the club. Dinamo Zagreb will largely be judged upon their Champions League disappointments this season after failing to win the opening four group matches.
“My contract is expiring soon and I honestly will tell you that even I do not have any plans. I don’t think about it too much, now I’ll have a little more time to devote to the future. I never said that I will not return to Maksimir! But I can not say at this moment that I will be back! Dinamo is my club, Dinamo created me and I never closed the door behind the ‘blue’. Maybe I will talk with the leaders of Dinamo,” said Eduardo.
