Manchester United are hoping to land some key players this summer. With the hopes of winning some titles next term after another trophy-less season. The Red Devils have been able to seal a deal for Jadon Sancho. After playing tug-of-war with Borussia Dortmund for over a year now.
However, United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are not ready to stop with the signing of Jadon Sancho. Various reports suggest that United is likely to be busier in the market in the coming weeks. Italian publication La Repubblica hints that United are likely to make a move for Marcelo Brozovic.
The Old Trafford club are still uncertain about the future of Paul Pogba. The French midfielder is nearing the end of his contract and is not showing any signs of renewal yet. Hence, United are hoping to cash him in soon to avoid losing the star for free.
Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic is the suitable substitute United have in mind now. La Republica states that United are willing to offer €30m(£25.8m) for the midfielder. Brozovic has been in good form for Inter Milan since his arrival back in 2015. Hence, Manchester United feel he is best to replace Pogba.
Manchester United not alone in the race:
United are not the only ones keen to sign the Croatian midfielder. Tottenham Hotspur are also keeping a close eye on Marcelo Brozovic. Barcelona are also ready to offer €30m for the player. Hence, the interest in Brozovic is pretty big from all around Europe.
Barcelona are facing a set-back with their recent financial problems. But their interest in the player will help Inter Milan up their asking price. United are offering €30m for the midfielder and will not be easy going to their transfer opponents. They are keen to form a strong lineup ahead of the upcoming season.
With Paul Pogba’s uncertain future on the table, Ole is keen to sign a substitute. Marcelo Brozovic has a similar playing style to that of Pogba. He is a box-to-box midfielder who can support the defence during counters. Also, act as a midfield general and makes key tackles to retain the ball for his team.
Marcelo Brozovic plays an important role in the Inter Milan midfield. Nerrazzuri would not be keen to let go of him in normal situations. However, reports hint that Brozovic is unlikely to renew his contract, which expires at the end of the next term. Brozovic is keen to make a shift to the Premier League and Manchester United seem a possible destination as of now.
Chance for a two-way deal?
United’s interest in Brozovic is pretty ‘concrete’ as per recent reports. Inter Milan can use this interest to their advantage. Nerazzurri are themselves facing some changes with the change in their manager. Simone Inzaghi is hoping to keep all of their current players. But they have already lost Achraf Hakimi and Ashley Young.
Hence, Milan are hoping to sign a capable wing-back this summer. Alex Telles of Manchester United is a top target for Nerrazzuri. The Italian club can try and urge United to make a two-way swap deal. As United are keen to recruit Brozovic while Milan want to sign Telles.
However, it is understood that United are not too keen to sell Telles now. The English club see Telles as a long-term asset to their side. But United may give Inter a chance to sign Telles on a season-long loan deal.
Hence, the likeliness of a permanent swap deal might be off the table. But Manchester United may take their loan interest in Telles to their good. To Gain an edge to secure Brozovic over their opponents in the race to sign the midfielder.
