Without Modric, but with Brozovic, this is how Inter move forward. It is obvious that had the first one arrived, he would have been the undoubted architect of this Inter team, but Perez, who had promised to let him leave after winning the third consecutive Champions League, did not stand by his promise to Modric.
In order to save face, a complaint was made by the President about Inter’s approach for Modric to FIFA, which was destined not to have a concrete follow-up.
Brozovic will be in control of the midfield, and it’s not that Spalletti is disappointed with this outcome, quite the contrary. The Croatian, once he was moved back in front of the defence, was one of the turning points of last season that gave Inter their place in the Champions League.
In fact, from that moment, on March 11th against Napoli, Brozovic no longer made a mistake. So much so that he carried his excellent form forward with his national team, and was one of the protagonists of the Croatian World Cup run in Russia, ended only in the final by France.
Corriere dello Sport emphasizes the importance of the Croatian for the Nerazzurri. A fact also highlighted by Spalletti yesterday in his press conference.
