Barcelona are not willing to meet Inter’s asking price for Marcelo Brozovic
According to a report by Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona will not match Inter Milan’s asking price for talented Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.
Tottenham Hotspur are said to be interested in securing the services of the veteran Croatian. He has been one of the standout performers for Inter Milan in recent years, and it’s no surprise that he’s on the radar of some of Europe’s top clubs.
Tottenham Hotspur’s interest in Brozovic stems from their need for more creativity in midfield. The North London outfit has struggled to create chances from deeper areas on the pitch, and the Croatian international could be the solution to their problems.
At 30 years old, Brozovic has a wealth of experience, having turned out crucial for Inter Milan. He has been a key player for the Nerazzurri in recent years, chipping in with goals and assists while also providing defensive cover for his team.
Barcelona cannot match Inter Milan’s asking price for Brozovic. The Serie A side is said to want €40 million for the midfielder, a fee that Barcelona cannot afford. This opens the door for Tottenham to swoop in.
Barcelona’s interest in Brozovic comes as no surprise, given their need for midfield reinforcements. Sergio Busquets is approaching the twilight of his career, while Franck Kessie’s future at the club remains uncertain.
Tottenham Hotspur are not the only club interested in Brozovic, however. Arsenal is also said to be keen on the Croatian international, and they too could make a move for him if Barcelona pulls out of the race.
If Tottenham Hotspur manages to secure Brozovic’s signature, it would be a statement of intent from the club. They would be signing one of the best midfielders in Serie A and a player who could help take them to the next level.
