The signing of Marcelo Brozovic by Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr seemed to be close to completion. However, Barça entered the fray. The Saudi Arabian club had tabled a huge offer for the Croatian international and were ready to present a tasty proposal to Inter Milan.
However, the Culés burst onto the scene hoping to persuade the star pivot to join them. Not with money, but with sporting promises and the charm of the Blaugrana badge and all that it represents. With Martin Zubimendi and Joshua Kimmich out of the equation, he was their best bet to replace Sergio Busquets in the short term.
According to various reports in the last few hours, Brozovic is increasingly inclined to sign for Barça. The Croatian is reluctant to accept the proposal from the Middle East and wants to stay in Europe after the interest of the Catalan giants.
However, he is still far from committing his future to Xavi Hernandez's side. Brozovic wants certain guarantees if is to play in the Blaugrana shirt. In addition, Joan Laporta is looking to lower the 25 million euros fee Inter Milan are asking for the star player.
A situation in which Al Nassr, according to Fabrizio Romano, is still confident of winning the race for Brozovic. A situation that, according to the journalist, will be clarified in the next few hours, with Monday being "a crucial day" to move forward negotiations.
The Nerazzuri are desperate to sell Brozovic as soon as possible, as the money from his departure will go towards the signing of Davide Frattesi from Sassuolo. With AC Milan planning to sign the same star after selling Sandro Tonali, the race is wide open between the two Serie A sides.
Given their side of the equation, it is highly unlikely that Inter will settle for anything less than the €25 million price tag. After all, they are selling a 30-year-old player, purely for the financial gain of the deal.
There is reason for optimism in the Spotify Camp Nou offices, but there is also the need to act quickly. Any agreement with the Italian giants must be reached in the next few days, as they risk losing Brozovic to Al Nassr.
