A lot has been said regarding Marcelo Brozovic’s future in the media and if a report from COPE’s Victor Navarro is to be believed, then Barcelona manager Xavi has spoken to the player to try to convince him to come to the club this summer.

The manager is of the idea that Brozovic is a player who can fulfil the requirements he has for a pivot midfielder. For the moment, the Croatian’s future is wide open as he controls his own destiny.

Over the last few days, Inter have reportedly agreed a deal worth €23 million with Al Nassr for the transfer of the midfielder, but Brozovic is holding off on the move.

As reported before, the 30-year-old is currently waiting for Barcelona to make an offer. Personal terms are not going to be a problem as the player has already given his OK to the transfer.

Despite the personal belief that the move could go Barcelona’s way, there is a slight possibility that he might move to Saudi Arabia after all. 

This is because first, Inter already have an agreement in place and the player also has a lucrative offer on the table. Second, if Barcelona fail to offload players before the end of this month, they would not be in a position to make an offer for him. 

Right now, the ball is in Brozovic’s court. He is the master of his own destiny and it is only he who will decide where would go.

Now, Xavi’s personal chat might have had an effect. After all, his talks with the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Jules Kounde last year, and Ilkay Gundogan this summer, were key to convincing them to sign for Barcelona.

On top of that, playing in Europe and more importantly, the UEFA Champions League, has its own charm, to say the very least.

But there is simply no denying the fact that Barcelona are in no place to match the economic offer from the Middle East. And until they are able to make some sales, a transfer will remain complicated.
