The exchange between Franck Kessie and Marcelo Brozovic is on the table, according to Italian news outlet La Repubblica. The deal depends on Barcelona: if the club tells Kessie he is out of the plans, the transfer can take shape. Then Brozovic needs to make a decision of whether to stay in Italy or move to Spain. The situation will become clear after the Super Cup between Inter and Milan.
As reported, Inter and Barcelona are in close contact and after the Supercoppa Italiana – scheduled for tomorrow – the managers of the two clubs will meet again. Simone Inzaghi gave his approval to the exchange – the former AC Milan captain has always been one of his favorites- but for the Nerazzurri top management, Brozovic remains an asset that is highly valued.
Furthermore, the Croatian is happy in Milan and the idea of changing teams during the season is not his intention. The offer is from Barcelona with Xavi, his idol as a boy, is difficult to say no to. The Barcelona coach has rejected the purchase of Kessie, with the player having had many offers over the past few months, Tottenham being the first. But Kessie wants to remain in La Liga this season. The idea of returning to Italy, to Milan, “tickles” him and not a little, which is why he has not closed the doors to a possible return home, states La Repubblica.
