Inter Milan have blocked the transfer of Marcelo Brozovic to Al Nassr. That’s because the Saudi club decided to lower the transfer fee.
As we reported yesterday, the Croatian has finally decided to accept the lucrative proposal from the Saudi club.
The 30-year-old was holding out for an offer from Barcelona. But due to the Catalans’ complicated financial situation, the deal was economically impossible.
Therefore, the deep-lying playmaker gave the KSA club the green light to finalize the operation. The two parties reached a verbal agreement regarding personal terms.
But while Inter and Al-Nassr already have an accord in place, circulating reports claims that the Saudi club is trying to modify it at the eleventh hour.
According to Italian journalist and transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio (via FcInterNews), the Nerazzurri have now decided to block the operation as Al-Nassr have significantly decreased their offer to 13 million euros plus two million as add-ons.
As the source tells it, the two clubs had previously agreed on a transfer fee worth 23 million euros. However, they didn’t formulate it in a written contract.
Moreover, Brozovic himself has reportedly requested a severance pay from the Nerazzurri.
Thus, the Italian giants have decided to pull the plug on the whole operation

Nevertheless, Inter were hoping to sell Brozovic to Al-Nassr as soon as possible in order to receive fresh transfer funds. However, the new figures were deemed unacceptable.
The Italian giants are chasing several profiles on the market, including Davide Frattesi. The Sassuolo midfielder would thereby replace the Croatian in the middle of the park, even though they have different characteristics.
However, selling Brozovic is of paramount importance to unlock the whole transfer market campaign.
