Barcelona midfielder has given his approval for Kessie-Brozovic swap deal – report

Barcelona received a major boost in the Kessie-Brozovic swap deal

Significant excitement among the Blaugrana fans was generated with recent reports of a swap transfer between Barcelona and Inter Milan, involving their players Frank Kessie and Marcelo Brozovic respectively.

The latest updates on this operation have been provided by Alfredo Pedulla, who claims that this operation is still on and the Ivorian midfielder has given his approval for this swap deal, and the next developments can take place once Inter Milan are done with the Italian Super Cup.

The Supercoppa Italiana final is scheduled to take place on Wednesday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, with AC Milan and Inter Milan contesting for the prized cup. Barcelona themselves had a successful Super Cup run this season, as they came out as the winners in the final against Real Madrid on Sunday.

Frank Kessie arrived from AC Milan last summer, but has since struggled to break into the starting 11, and becoming increasingly pessimistic about his chances at the Catalan club.

Marcelo Brozovic, while being a trusted veteran of the Italian club over the years, has seen chances scarce this season, with him starting only around a half of the total competitive matches played by the club.

Barcelona themselves are in the market for a midfielder who can replace their soon-to-depart captain, Sergio Busquets. Thus, the circumstances of all the involved parties are in perfect alignment, and only an agreement needs to be arrived at to make this swap a possibility.
