Marcelo Brozovic

José Mourinho travelled to Croatia to scout two Chelsea targets yesterday: the Manchester United boss was in Zagreb to watch Inter players Marcelo Brozovic and Ivan Perisic.

The winger was suspended for the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine, but the Special One met ex Real Madrid striker Predrag Mijatovic, that became his agent some months ago to understand if a move to Old Trafford is possible.

The Red Devils are ready to place a € 40m offer to Inter but Suning, new Nerazzurri owners since last year, are not keen in selling the Croatian international and will consider only offers from € 60m on: also Chelsea were interested in him and will find the same situation in case they would like to bring Perisic to Stamford Bridge.

Marcelo Brozovic, instead, can leave Inter next summer and Inter can listen offers for him as, after the signing of Roberto Gagliardini and the growth of Geoffrey Kondongbia, the midfielder is a not a regular starter anymore.

It’s rumoured that Monaco would like to offer € 50m for him, but Manchester United and Chelsea are in the race for the 24-year-old as well since they have been tracking him for at least one year.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has made Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic a main target to replace Cesc Fabregas, should the Spaniard leave on a season-long loan in January, according to Calciomercato.com.

The 23-year-old’s ownership is currently esteemed around £22m by the Serie A giants, which are struggling with a slow start to the season and could decide to sell the Croatia international when the transfer market window reopens.

The Blues had been linked with a move for Brozovic last summer, anyway the Italian manager is said to be also a great admirer of Sevilla star Steven N’Zonzi.

Marcelo Brozovic‘s agent Miroslav Bicanic spoke to Croatian dauly Jutarnji:

It was not about the money: Marcelo stayed at Inter also for technical and tactical reasons,” the Croatia international representant explained.

Linked to Juventus, Arsenal and Chelsea during the last transfer window, the midfielder is now ready to extend his deal with the Nerazzurri.

Chelsea are still keen on Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, but the Nerazzurri judged the € 20m ( £ 18m) offer from the Blues too low.

The Italian club put a € 35 ( £ 31.5m) fee on the Croatia international, that this afternoon didn’t take part to the training with his national team to negotiate with other clubs.

Juventus are keen on him as well, but Inter rejected to sell him to their long-time rivals, even if the Bianconeri are still pushing Brozovic to join them.

The Croatian midfielder rejected a € 2.5m per year deal extension with Inter some days ago, asking a € 4m contract that the club didn’t want to subscribe, and with the right offer he can leave the Nerazzurri by tomorrow night.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is looking to sign Inter Milan star Marcelo Brozovic.

Although Inter Milan are willing to part ways with the player, the two clubs are yet to come to an agreement.

Chelsea have offered €10m plus John Obi Mikel, according to Calcio Mercato. However, Inter have rejected the offer, they are not in the market for a central midfielder right now.

The Blues need to make a serious offer for the Croatian if they are to bring him to Stamford Bridge because the report also suggests that other Premier League clubs are monitoring the midfielders situation.

Chelsea are lining up a £12.7m move to sign Croatian international midfielder Marcelo Brozovic this summer, according to the Express.

The 23-year-old currently plays for Inter on a deal with Italian club until June 2019 and the Nerazzurri are reportedly going to pay Dinamo Zagreb £3.8m to make his deal permanent

According to Italian reports Chelsea are targeting two Inter Croatian players to revamp their midfield: both Marcelo Brozovic and Ivan Perisic can land to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Corriere dello Sport reports that the Blues want to place £ 14m bid for Perisic, but Inter paid him the same amount of money after a very long negotiation with Wolfsburg last summer so it’s unlikely they will let him go for the same price, especially after the ex Borussia Dortmund player started to make an impact after struggling to settle in the Serie A in the first months of his Italian experience.

The case of Marcelo Brozovic is different: he has been at Inter for more than one year and soon made an impact in the Italian side.

Arsenal has been tracking him for months and are ready to place a £ 25m bid to sign him, so Chelsea would have to challenge with the Gunners to get him.

Brozovic is only 23, four years younger than Perisic that is 27, and is considered one of the best young midfielder around Europe.

Recently, he didn’t deny a move in next summer transfer window, leaving all the doors open:

“I have heard about these rumours. For now, I am an Inter player and I will behave as such,” he told Croatian newspaper Jutarnji.

“Everything is possible. We’ll see. We’ll know more after the Euros.”
