Marcelo Brozovic’s agent has played down rumours linking his client with a move away from Inter and says the midfielder feels “at home” in Milan.
Brozovic was one of six Inter players to sign a contract extension in October, tying himself to the Nerazzurri until 2022, but the €60 million release clause in his new deal had led to speculation he could be tempted away next summer.
However Miroslav Bicanic insists the Croatian is fully focused on achieving success with Inter, praising him for having become a more mature person in recent months.
“Marcelo sees Milan as his home, so there’s no reason to play up any talk about him leaving Inter,” he told Vecernji List.
“The club have put him at ease and made him feel important, and now he’s found a new level of human maturity too.
“If any of Europe’s top clubs are interested in paying his release clause then they’ll also have to make the right offer to him.
“Marcelo is focused on helping Inter challenge Juventus in Serie A and wants to achieve great results with them.”
Brozovic was sent off in Inter’s defeat to Atalanta last weekend but has been in excellent form since the start of the season, something Bicanic attributes the amount of game-time he has been offered.
“Marcelo’s good form is the result of the consistency he’s had since the World Cup,” he continued.
“[Croatia head coach] Zlatko Dalic has put his faith in him and he’s started producing great performances again. He’s grown in confidence and now believes he can play at the highest level.
“His performances in Russia last summer weren’t a flash in the pan – in fact he’s taken new energy from the World Cup.”
