Paris Saint-Germain was linked with Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic for a possible transfer deal over the recent transfer window. Still, there were no reports over the window period of PSG showing any serious interest in signing the midfielder to bolster its current depth. However, a new report has surfaced detailing the plan that PSG had to sign Brozovic.
PSG showed serious interest in a swap deal with Inter Milan including Leandro Paredes and Brozovic, according to a report from the Italian-based outlet CalcioMercato. PSG pushed with the proposal, but Inter did not budge on the offer. The report mentions that Inter did not believe that Paredes would be much of an upgrade over Brozovic. The two sides never entered into serious negotiations for the talent, thus a deal did not materialize between the two clubs.
In the end, Brozovic had no interest in leaving Inter and the Serie A side was more than content with keeping the talent for this season. From PSG’s perspective, the club did not have the budget to propose a permanent transfer deal over the transfer window, which is why the club was forced to push for such a swap deal. But Paredes is proving with his play as of late the club made the right decision to keep him.
