Chelsea set to rival Barcelona and Real Madrid in race to sign World Cup semi-finalist

Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid are reportedly keeping close tabs on Marcelo Brozovic's situation at Inter Milan, with the trio keen to sign him this summer.

Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic has been rumoured to be leaving the Italian club at the end of the current campaign.

The 30-year-old just extended his contract with the Italian giants, which will keep him at San Siro until 2026.

Thus, it is still unclear whether Inter Milan will be willing to sell him.

The Serie A team, though, is reportedly facing financial difficulties, and they may be forced to sell some of their players in order to balance the books.

Clubs interested in signing the Inter Milan midfielder

According to a Gazzetta report, Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Barcelona are interested in signing the Croatian international.

The middle of the park needs additional depth for all three teams, and Brozovic would be a great addition.

The Croatian has recently played an important role for both club and nation. In 2018 and 2022, he assisted his nation in reaching the World Cup semifinals.

Chelsea’s Jorginho was just traded to Arsenal, and French midfielder N’Golo Kante’s contract expires in the summer.

Meanwhile, Conor Gallagher and Mason Mount are two other players that have been linked to exits from the club.

Thus, the Blues are in pursuit of Marcelo Brozovic’s signatures this summer.

The seasoned midfielder may adapt easily and have a big influence in the Premier League the next season.

It will be interesting to see if Chelsea can hire his services in the coming months despite competition from the two Spanish clubs.

Brozovic has already established himself as a top player in the Italian league, so he might be enticed to take on a fresh challenge in the Premier League right now.

Meanwhile, looking at the current league standings, the London club might also miss out on the Champions League spot, which could lead to Brozovic making a move away from the Stamford Bridge.
