FC Barcelona Director of Football, Mateu Alemany, recently met with Inter Milan’s Sports Director, Piero Ausilio, and agent Edoardo Crnjar. The meeting reportedly discussed potential deals between the two clubs, with several player names mentioned.
There have been rumors of a potential exchange between Franck Kessie and Inter’s Marcelo Brozovic. Kessie has impressed in the limited minutes he has had in the league, and Barcelona could be interested in Brozovic as a possible replacement for Sergio Busquets, who is aging and has been linked with a move away from Camp Nou.
Andreas Christensen, Samuel Umtiti, and Marcos Alonso are also among the names mentioned as potential transfer targets in the meeting held at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. Sky Italia has suggested that Inter are interested in signing Christensen and Alonso to strengthen their defense, while Barcelona are keen on keeping the duo. Umtiti, who has found a resurgence in his career on loan at Lecce, is also reportedly being considered by Inter as per the recent report from SPORT.
While no official deals have been made yet, the meeting between Alemany, Ausilio, and Crnjar suggests that both clubs are actively looking for ways to improve their squads amidst their financial difficulties. The transfer market will be a crucial time for both clubs as they try to combat their financial woes while remaining competitive.
With Barcelona’s financial situation and Lionel Messi’s potential return to the club, any incoming transfer fees would be welcomed. However, the club will need to consider the impact of letting go of key players in the rebuilding process.
