Tottenham and Chelsea have been boosted after learning Inter Milan are willing to sell Marcelo Brozovic and Matias Vecino this week.
That’s accordng to il Corriere dello Sport, who claims Inter are looking to offload a number of stars in order to finance a move for Luka Modric, who is looking to leave Real Madrid.
It was reported on Thursday that Modric is ready to turn his back on his successful Bernabeu stint and earn one last pay day in Italy with Inter. But Real president Florentino Perez won’t let his player go without a fight and has reportedly stuck a ridiculous €750m price tag on his head.
While that fee obviously remains unrealistic, it does show that Inter will have to spend big to persuade Real to part company with a man rated as the best in the world at the 2018 World Cup.
In order to raise funds, Inter boss Luciano Spalletti is said to have told a number of stars they will be put up for sale.
And il Corriere dello Sport claims winger Vecino is set to sign for Chelsea for a fee of around €30m, while midfield powerhouse Brozovic is being monitored by Tottenham, with a fee of €50m being mooted for the all-action midfielder.
