Barcelona have made an attempt to swap Franck Kessie with Inter’s Marcelo Brozovic recently.
While rumours in Spain spoke about the rumours, Gianluca di Marzio
the news. It is reported that Inter have, in the last few hours, received a proposal from Barcelona to swap the two midfielders.
There have been no concrete developments on this front so far as it is an idea which can only be taken forward if the wishes of the players are taken into consideration. Two clubs have spoken through intermediaries so far and as of now, the negotiation has not taken off, claim
The idea took birth at Barcelona’s end and has not taken off at Inter’s end; so far, atleast. The key part of the negotiation might be fact that both of the players’ contracts run out in 2026. Brozovic has not played for Inter since the World Cup due to injury, whereas Kessie is not considered to be a key part of the Barcelona side and there has been talk of his exit already. They also earn the same salary – €6 million per season.
Any swap deal remains complicated because Inter consider Brozovic to be a vital player.
