The player's father, a former player, stated about the possible move to TAU:
"We had received an offer from Real Madrid also, but TAU's offer seems to be the most interesting one. TAU sent offered a development-based contract, and it is my belief that this offer suits a young player like Darijo better. I spoke with Duško Ivanović whom I know from my playing days and although he hasn't seen Darijo play live, he said that he had heard all the best about him. He said he will be personally in charge of his development and will give him a chance at playing for the first team in a season or two.
Naturally, this must not be taken as granted as one never knows coaches' decisions. But all things considered, letting Darijo go and sign with TAU seems to be the best deal."
If the deal goes ahead Saric will become TAU's next project after Scola, Splitter, Teletovic etc.
