Manchester United are eyeing a move for Marcelo Brozovic in what could be a double swoop by Jose Mourinho on former club Inter Milan this summer, according to a report in the Metro.
Mourinho is expected to be busy in the transfer market this summer as he looks to build a squad capable of competing for the Premier League and Champions League next season.
A new central midfielder is among the United bosses priorities as he needs to find a long-term replacement for Michael Carrick – who turns 36 next month – and it seems he’s ready to turn his attention to Brozovic once again.
The Croatian international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the past and the Metro are citing a report from Gazzetta dello Sport that claims United have now revived their interest.
Brozovic joined Inter from Dinamo Zagreb in 2015 heralded as one of the most promising young midfielders in European football and he’s now a regular with the Croatian national team.
The 24-year-old enjoyed a mixed campaign at the San Siro last season and the newspaper says United are ready to pounce if Inter decide to cash-in on him this summer as they look to raise funds to meet UEFA Financial Fair Play regulations.
Any move could be part of a double swoop by Mourinho on his former club as United are also being strongly tipped to sign Inter attacker Ivan Perisic this summer.
Mourinho needs to add some creativity to his attack after registering just 54 goals last season and Perisic would fit the bill nicely having scored 11 and set-up a further 12 for Inter last campaign.
The Metro claim that United want to sign both Perisic and his compatriot Brozovic but are so far refusing to meet Inter’s £44m valuation having seen their £35m bid for the 28-year-old rejected.

We’ll have to wait and see how things develop but I personally think Inter will only allow one player to leave this summer and Perisic remains the most likely to be heading to Old Trafford.
