Sky: Brozovic’s Saudi Pro League move could impact Milan’s pursuit of Frattesi

By Euan Burns -

The fact that Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic is very close to signing for a Saudi Arabian club could have a serious effect on AC Milan’s pursuit of Sassuolo midfielder Davide Frattesi, a report claims. 

As has been reported by Sky Sport (via Milan News), the Croatian midfielder is very close to joining Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr, where he will link up with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Inter are set to receive about €22-24 million for that deal and it will give them some capital to invest in the purchase of Frattesi from Sassuolo.

They are the main rivals for Milan when it comes to Frattesi and whilst Milan have gained the advantage by seeing Sandro Tonali depart, that could quickly disappear.

The fact that Inter have got Nicolo Barella is also thought to be a point in their favour as Frattesi has spoken about his admiration of the fellow Italian midfielder.

  1. Why can’t we sell the likes of Rebic, Messias & Co. to Saudi? Oh wait, our transfer is run by financial expert, behind the scenes scout, and a yes man coach. All combined do have the kind of connection on the higher ups.

    1. Dude, the reason we can’t sell them is that nobody wants them – they haven’t exactly put themselves in the shop window last season – best we can hope is that we can shift them off the salary bill…

      1. That’s the art of selling. Getting rid of something (or someone in this case) that no one seems to want while still getting economical yields. And you don’t learn this in school.

    2. Dude , Saudi club only want to buy big name player. All our bench player just mediocre and their value below 10m euro . Rebic ,origi,junior messias,ballo toure,florenzi ,tatarusanu,adili. None of that name have market value 9m euro above. Our loan player are failed too , all of them back to their parent club. It is hard to sell trash & mediocre player

  2. They are getting 22 for Brozo but will splash out 40 for Frattesi? Are the selling Onana? What kind of creative accounting are they doing over there???

    1. They won 2 cups and featured in CL final. Sure maybe their owners are facing some financial turbulence, but at least they are making a great team to fight in all competitions.

    2. I think they use the kind of accountants who work for communist states/banana republics. I’m much happier being an AC Milan fan right now than an Inter one with a financial structure built on toothpicks.

    3. Because in accounting terms, they’ll get 22 for Brozovic tomorrow but ‘only’ spend 8m per season for the next 5 years on Frattesi. Who’ll probably be in slightly cheaper wages maybe too.

      And obviously they’re expecting an Onana sale too, but they are a bit more competent than our side so they already have a cheaper replacement lined up.

    4. They’re getting 60m for Onana, 22 for Broz so 82 and splashing out 40 on Frattesi. They still have 40 to spend or go towards balancing the books. They don’t have to get a GK, they still hv Handanovic
      It’s for this reason I think Sportiello is going to be our first choice keeper come September.

    5. They use formula loan 1 years and obligation to buy 35m euro at the end of season . Sassoulo accept all loan formula if including obligation to buy. Frattessi want to play alongside barella too.

  3. They know what they need and are sistematically building their squad. But what irritates me the most is the number of Italian national team players they’ll have. It’s shameful for Milan really, this club used to consist of core Italy NT players.

  4. Inter are downgrading and overpaying.
    Brozovic is the better player between the 2, plus Fratessi and Barella play in the same position. One of them will be forced to play on the left of Hakan.
    Hakan performances as a regista while Brozovic was injured made Brozo dispensable
