Inter Milan fans react as Newcastle reportedly eye their duo, one could be available on a free transfer
Newcastle are said to be in the market for two Inter Milan stars in Stefan de Vrij and Marcelo Brozovic – and Inter fans have reacted on Twitter.
The Toon are being linked with an enormous list of players since the club completed a £305million takeover last week. Agents are having a field day.
CalcioMercato say the latest names to be targeted with a move to St. James’ Park include 29-year-old de Vrij. He has been a stalwart for Inter.
That is, since swapped PSV for Inter in 2018 – clocking up 133 outings since that move. He is out of contract in 2023 and clubs are starting to take note.
That includes Newcastle. But the Toon are not done there in looking at Inter players, with 28-year-old midfielder Brozovic also on the owners’ radar.
Croatia international Brozovic is out of contract at the end of the season and numerous Premier League sides have been linked with a move.
Newcastle are the latest, with midfield likely to be targeted as a place to improve. Jonjo Shelvey, Isaac Hayden and Sean Longstaff are the options.
What are Inter fans saying as Newcastle eye de Vrij and Brozovic?
Both signings would dramatically improve Newcastle. That is even in the midst of a relegation fight – they need hard-working, battling players.
Brozovic’s stamina is incredible and despite already playing more than 400 games for club and country – he is always available and ready to go.
His passing, control of the tempo and intelligence is what Newcastle need. De Vrij is an old-fashioned defender, and that fighting spirit is ideal.
However, could both be tempted by Newcastle? Time will tell. Inter fans have had their say on the reports that both could leave the club.
