Inter CEO Beppe Marotta is keeping the renewals of Marcelo Brozovic and Ivan Perisic at the club a priority, and the club are in constant communication about their deals.
Speaking to DAZN ahead of this evening’s Serie A clash with Roma, the CEO gave his thoughts on the match and also spoke about the contract situations of the two Croatian players whose current deals expire next summer.
Inter have made extending Brozovic’s contract a priority for some time given that he is a vital player in midfielder, while Perisic’s performances this season have also caused the club to try and convince him to stay on.
No agreement has been found with either player yet but, as Marotta explained, the Nerazzurri are continually working to make progress in the talks to secure their futures.
The executive also had words on what he expects from the clash with the Giallorossi this evening, stating that “I expect a game full of potential pitfalls.”
“Despite their form, Roma have a competitive squad even with the absences right now,” he added. “I hope to see a good match, our hope is that we can continue in the direction we’ve been going.”
Of renewals at the club, he said that “These are processes that are part of our daily agenda. Ausilio and I have frequent contact with their representatives.”
“This group deserves to be rewarded with their futures being confirmed,” he added. “Right now we are focused on the league and the Champions League.”
“If the will of the players is to continue, then an agreement can be found,” explained.
“I have great admiration for Mourinho,” he said of the Roma and former Inter coach, “he takes us at Inter back to a wonderful year, one of the most incredible moments in the history of the club.”
Marotta explained that “I feel it even though I was not present at the time.”
He also clarified that he “Never considered appointing [Mourinh] as a coach, he was already at other clubs. Our paths never crossed.”
