Inter are hoping to accelerate the negotiations to extend midfielder Marcelo Brozovic’s contract, though his father and lawyer are in no rush.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Croat’s situation is on standby with the first meeting yet to take place, but that the club are pushing to move forward with talks.
Brozovic’s current deal is set to run out at the end of June 2022, but the Nerazzurri are determined not to lose him on a free transfer next summer as he is an important player at the club.
To this end the club are ready to offer the 28-year-old a new contract in order to secure his future, with the amount they are ready to reach reportedly around the same that Nicolo Barella is close to agreeing, €4.5 million net per season plus add-ons.
It remains to be seen if this will come close to convincing the player and his father to get a new deal over the line or if talks could drag on and become difficult.
