Barca had reportedly been in the mix for Brozovic, with previous reports claiming the midfielder was willing to wait to see if an offer would be forthcoming.
Yet it appears Brozovic wasn’t keen to wait very long and Barcelona must now look elsewhere for a new midfielder.
Oriol Romeu has been mentioned as a possible option, although don’t be surprised if the rumor mill comes up with a few more names in the next few days.
