Marcelo Brozovic’s Al-Nassr move stalls as Saudi club lower the offer

Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic’s move to Al-Nassr has hit an unexpected stumbling following the Saudi club’s reduction in their offer.

Al-Nassr reportedly finalised the deal for the Croatian midfielder yesterday, agreeing a fee worth €23 million with Inter.

However, Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio is now reporting that the Saudi giants have reduced their offer to €15m, causing the move to stall.

Brozovic has also requested Inter a compensation fee for his departure.

It will be interesting to see how the situation evolves, but it looks as though Inter wouldn’t budge away from the initial offer.

The Nerazzurri decided to sell Brozovic after receiving Al-Nassr’s original offer, as it would help them ease their financial troubles.

However, the 30-year-old delayed his decision as he was waiting for Barcelona to make a move.

With the Spanish giants failing to match Inter’s valuation due to their economic woes, Brozovic gave the nod to Al-Nassr.

The stalling of the deal will have an impact on Inter’s pursuit of Davide Frattesi, who has been earmarked as the replacement for Brozovic.

Having reached a verbal agreement with the Italian midfielder, Inter’s plans were to finalise the transfer fee with Sassuolo once they sort out Brozovic’s transfer.

The Nerazzurri are aware of the interest in Frattesi, with AC Milan and Roma keeping close tabs on him.

They have formalised the departure of Milan Skriniar, who will be heading to Paris Saint-Germain.

Inter are also keen on selling Andre Onana, who remains a top target for Manchester United.

The Nerazzurri are eager to recoup a significant fee from the Cameroonian goalkeeper and have informed Man United they need more than €50m.
