Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic has become a target for Premier League club Newcastle United, but his priority remains finding an agreement on renewal with the Nerazzurri.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the English side have joined Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain in monitoring the Croat, but that his will is to stay at Inter.
Brozovic’s current deal is set to expire at the end of June 2022, but the club have made wrapping up an extension a priority, with the first meeting with the player’s father scheduled for this Thursday.
The player is happy in Milan and a pivotal part of the team so the common will is to find an agreement on renewing his contract, but the offer must be satisfactory to the 28-year-old.
Summer signing Hakan Calhanoglu earns a net of €5 million per season with the club so an offer below this is not likely to convince the player, but should the Nerazzurri reach around €6 million net annually plus add-ons he would be happy to agree a new deal.
However, as long as his contract situation looms he is the subject of interest from other clubs, and Newcastle are now among the clubs looking to persuade the midfielder as they look to build their project under new owners.
