Real Madrid and Liverpool are reportedly willing to offer between 7 million euros and 8 million euros a year for Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, citing The Hard Tackle , Wednesday (10/11).
Brozovic joined Inter Milan from Dinamo Zagreb in January 2015 and has come a long way since then. This Croatian player is one of the best midfielders in Serie A at the moment. To date, the 28-year-old has made 258 appearances for the reigning Serie A champions, with 26 goals and 35 assists. However, Inter Milan are in a precarious position over Brozovic’s long-term future.
He has been a mainstay in the Nerazzurri’s midfield for the last six years. At the same time, he has also become a key player for his national team, playing a major role in their journey to the 2018 FIFA World Cup final.
Because he is in the final year of his contract with the club and no closer to signing an extension. Situations like that then make Real Madrid and Liverpool prepare themselves. Los Blancos have been linked with several midfielders recently, with Brozovic among the players on their radar. Reports even suggest that Brozovic would be interested in joining Real Madrid if the opportunity arose. On the other hand, Liverpool are eyeing the 28-year-old for the same reason. As was the case at Real Madrid, Liverpool need to put in place a succession plan for veteran midfielder James Milner.
Real Madrid strengthened their midfield in the summer by signing Eduardo Camavinga. However, with Luka Modric nearing the end of his playing days, there is a desire to add another midfielder, especially with Isco and Dani Ceballos not being favored by Carlo Ancelotti.
Moreover, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looks set to leave Anfield sooner or later, which would open up a place in the midfield department. So Liverpool’s point of view makes sense.
As well as Real Madrid and Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain are also eyeing Brozovic, with each of the three clubs ready to offer him deals worth up to 8 million euros a year.
The Croatian applicant will be able to open negotiations at the turn of the year, and Inter will be keen to tie him to a new contract before then, so they don’t risk losing him for free.
