He has just signed a new contract at Inter, but according to Gazzetta dello Sport that will not stop Inter selling midfielder Marcelo Brozovic in January in order to comply with Financial Fair Play rules.
Brozovic has been given a new lease on life under Stefano Pioli, and the Croatian has scored four goals in his last four games, including a brace on Sunday evening against Genoa.
Brozovic could raise a much needed €25-30m in order to balance the Nerazzurri books, with a sale made easier through no shortage of admirers in the former Dinamo Zagreb man.
Brozovic’s new contract comes with a €50 million release clause, which can only be triggered by clubs outside of Italy. But nobody is willing to pay that type of release clause, which is why the €25-30m is being branded about.
Antonio Conte is reportedly a big fan of Brozovic, and tried to sign the the 24-year-old midfielder this summer as Chelsea need another midfielder. It appears more and more likely that John Obi Mikel and Oscar are on their way out of the club, and their departure would leave Conte with only three experienced central midfielders in Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic, and N’golo Kante. Should Fabregas also depart, it will leave Chelsea very light in midfield.
What do you think of Inter potentially selling Brozovic?
