Real Madrid defender Alvaro Odriozola is a target for Italian Serie A side Inter Milan according to the latest reports in the media. Spanish player Odriozola spent the just concluded season on loan at Fiorentina in the Italian league and he’s one of the players that could be sold at Real Madrid this summer.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez would be hoping to bring in some funds in the form of transfers after making two statement signings to boost the squad that won the Champions League trophy at the end of last month. The LA Liga champions have signed German international Antonio Rudiger on a free transfer and Frenchman AurelienTchouameni in a deal that could reach the €100m mark. Real Madrid signed the two players on the back of being snubbed by prime target KylianMbappe who stayed at Paris Saint Germain (PSG). Mbappe signed a new PSG deal instead of leaving to sign for Real Madrid on a free transfer. Continue reading “ODRIOZOLA, A TARGET FOR INTER MILAN”

Despite signing a couple of players in the January winter transfer window last month, Barcelona manager Xavi looks to be interested in making more signings for the club as he wishes to continue building the Barca team. Xavi gave Barcelona the green light to go all out and sign Adama Traore from Wolverhampton Wanderers, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Arsenal, and Ferrab Torres from Manchester City. While it is still not clear why he intended to sign only attackers without bringing in reinforcements in any other department, he may well have a plan of his own.
As proof to him having a plan, it looks like Xavi set aside the winter transfer window to sign attackers only and decided to continue adding players to the squad from the summer. According to repost, the Blaugrana have registered an interest in Inter Milan midfirkder Marcelo Brozovic. They have tabled an offer of a five-year deal worth €8 million net per season as soon as his current contract with Inter runs out in the summer.

The future of Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic is still a huge doubt and the Serbian star’s move away from the club could be closer than ever. Matic has dropped down the midfield pecking order at the club and has fallen behind the trio of Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, and Fred in the starting lineup. United manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær reportedly wants to cash in on the midfielder this summer and there could be arrangements for that, with reports claiming that Italian Serie A giants and current Champions Inter Milan have continued to increase their interest in the player.
Matic himself is said to be open to the idea of leaving Old Trafford as he wants to be involved in more football games than he is currently entitled to under Solksjær. He has reportedly been weighing up his options since toward the end of last season as Inter Milan are not the only club that have shown interest in his signature.

Inter Milan are closing in on a first title in over a decade after the nervy win over Hellas Verona in their latest league clash on Sunday. The Nerazzuri had not won the league since the Jose Mourinho era and it looks like that league title drought is coming to an end.
Mourinho masterminded an impressive treble at Inter Milan at the end of the 2009/10 season. The Nerazzuri had won both the league and the Coppa Italia before Argentine striker Diego Milito scored twice in the Champions League final to lead Inter to a 2-0 win over German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich thereby completing the haul of three major trophies in a season.
Inter Milan have failed to hit the heights of that season under Mourinho since then. Mourinho would leave the club to join Real Madrid after his impressive performance in the Inter Milan dugout at the end of the 2009/10 campaign. He was replaced by Spaniard Rafael Benitez.
