Five-time European champions Barcelona are said to be keen on signing Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic at the end of the season. The Croatian international would be a free agent at the end of this season if he does not agree a new Inter Milan deal.
Italian news outlet Calciomercato reported that Barcelona have already informed the player about their quest to sign him as a free agent at the end of this season. The interest of Barcelona has complicated things for the Nerazzuri who were very sure that the Croatian midfielder will sign a new contract at the club. As things stand, Brozovic will need to pick one side. He has to determine if joining Xavi Hernandez as part of his revolution at Barcelona is the next step for his career or staying at the San Siro via a new deal.
Inter have already made an offer for Brozovic, but the midfielder is yet to sign it. The Croatian will be on of the highest earners at Inter with the salary of €6m on a yearly basis. The midfielder has been offered a four-year contract.
Brozovic is a regular in the Inter Milan as highlighted by him missing just one game for the club in all competitions this season. He has played 29 out of the 30 Inter Milan games in all competitions this season. The Barcelona target missed the solitary game due to suspension. He was not in the Nerazzuri squad for the 2-1 extra time win over Empoli in the last 16 as far as this season’s Coppa Italia is concerned.
Barcelona fans would be hoping that Brozovic will sign for them ahead of his current team. The Catalans have been very active in the transfer market this year with the signings of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Adama Traore and Ferran Torres.
