Tottenham join Manchester United in race to sign Marcelo Brozovic
Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur have joined Manchester United in pursuit of Inter Milan ace Marcelo Brozovic
According to the latest transfer news on Gazzetta Dello Sport via GIFN (h / t The Boot Room), Manchester United have been joined by rivals Tottenham Hotspur to secure the signing of Inter Milan star Marcelo Brozovic.
The Croatian superstar has been one of the Nerazzurri’s most loyal servants since joining the club in 2016. Although it has only been five years, he is already one of the longest-serving members of the squad. , and his consistency has helped the Italian team compete for Serie A and even won it last year.
While the managers have changed over the years, the midfielder has been a key part of the squad. However, that might not last very long as the 28-year-old has now entered the final year of his contract and will be eligible to leave the club on a free transfer at the end of this season.
Manchester United are keeping an eye on the Croatian as he apparently looks to sign a defensive midfielder next summer.
Moreover, Paul Pogba may or may not stay at the club next summer while Nemanja Matic’s contract will also expire in 2023. So bringing in reinforcements would be the right decision. The Inter Milan ace has a lot of experience playing at the highest level while he is also a proven international player.
So while signing him may be a ‘no-brainer’, they are now put in competition by Tottenham Hotspur for the midfielder’s signature, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport via GIFN (h / t The Boot Room). In fact, PSG are also considering a move for him.

Thus, competition is stiff for the Croatian star, who is asking £ 99,000 a week from the San Siro outfit to stay at the club.
The Italian side are going through a cash flow problem and if United were to bring in the 28-year-old they would be smart enough to take advantage of Milan’s financial woes and make the player a reasonable contract offer.
