An agreement on a new contract between Inter and midfielder Marcelo Brozovic could be close at hand, with the intention of both parties to agree a new deal and only the financial details left to be negotiated.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Croat could soon come to an agreement on an extension and that the club are hoping for this outcome sooner rather than later.
Brozovic’s father is currently in Milan and a meeting with the Nerazzurri is on the agenda as they look to swiftly move talks along on a renewal of the 28-year-old’s contract, which is currently set to expire at the end of June 2022.
The Nerazzurri are determined to avoid a situation where the midfielder could leave on a free transfer next summer and they want to secure his future, while the player is happy at the club and would like to remain as a major contributor in the project.
Brozovic is thought to want a salary at least equal to that of summer signing Hakan Calhanoglu, who earns €4.5 million net this season rising to €5 million each subsequent season of his contract, while the €6 million net annually reportedly close to being agreed by Lautaro Martinez could provide another point of reference.
The negotiations must still take place and an agreement on wages must be found before the midfielder will renew with the Nerazzurri, but signs are optimistic that they can reach an agreement.
