Just hours after Marcelo Brozovic accepted a deal with Al-Nasr, Inter responded by blocking the deal. The reason: the Saudi club decided to lower their transfer fee offer to a total of 15 million.
These new conditions proposed by Al-Nassr for the transfer of Marcelo Brozovic fall far short for Inter as they originally agreeeed to 23 million. As confirmed by Gianluca Di Marzio of SkySport, the Croatian midfielder’s move to Saudi Arabia is back in the balance.
On Wednesday, Brozovic accepted Al-Nassr’s offer which was a verbal agreement to raise their engagement offer to a total of 100 million over a course of three years. This convinced the player to leave Inter after rejecting Al Nassr’s initial offer of 60 million over three years.
As a result of the 40 million raise, Al-Nassr decided to reformulate their transfer offer to the midfielder’s current club. The original agreement for 23 million has been decreased to 13 million euros plus an additional 2 in bonuses. To add a further wrinkle to the situation, Brozovic was reportedly demanding severance pay from Inter upon his move to Saudi Arabia. Apparently, all of this is unacceptable for the Nerazzurri and the deal is now blocked.
The plot of this transfer saga continues to unravel. Stay tuned.
