Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has provided confirmation that midfielder Marcelo Brozovic should officially sign his contract extension in the next few days.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, the Nerazzurri executive spoke about the talks with the 29-year-old being nearing a successful end, and also spoke on some other important matters at the club.

Extending Brozovic’s contract has been a key priority for the Nerazzurri, with the Croat a key player on the pitch and the club wanting to secure his future.

An agreement has reportedly been close for some time, but the final details and the signing of the contract have remained to be wrapped up.

Now, recent reports have suggested that the midfielder will sign a new deal soon, and Marotta has confirmed that it should not be long before the new deal and the announcement.

“Today we know that the club and the player both want to continue together,” he said, “in a few days we will certainly have the signing which will make the extension official.”

Of the Nerazzurri’s recent poor form on the pitch, the executive stated that “There are moments in life and in sport in particular where one must accept some suffering.”

“But we must have the strength to continue on the path we’re on,” he continued, “taking confidence from how far we’ve already come this season.”

“Our place in the table is still very good, we won the Supercoppa, and these achievement have been the result of the team playing a beautiful style of football,” he added.

Marotta went on that “We don’t want to promote the a culture of making excuses, but we knew that these two months would be the most difficult of the season.”

“Since January 12 we have played with nine top-level teams, but this must not become an excuse for us,” he added.

He went on that “We must face our opponents with full awareness that we want to be at the top for the entire season, this season we will play for it right until the end with calmness and confidence, and believe in ourselves.”

On what the team has gotten from Simone Inzaghi as head coach, Marotta named “Always being a well-prepared professonal, who is carrying out the objectives set out at the beginning of the season.”

“Yesterday was a well-deserved defeat but we must take it as an important opportunity,” he went on, “to look at the things that didn’t go well, but always still believing in ourselves.”

“The team has clear objectives in mind,” he emphasized, “we are reigning champions and we want to defend the Scudetto and get the second star on our chests.”

On the recent poor form of Lautaro Martinez in front of goal, he said that “Simone underlined it after the game and I’ll reiterate it. In a young man there are always ups and downs, but during the week he always fully applies himself.”

“He’s gone without the most important thing, a goal to grow his self-belief,” he continued. “It’s up to the team, and the club that supports him, and then him to find that goal and to make him get back to the player we all know and respect.”

On the duo Samir Handanovic and Ivan Perisic, both out of contract in the summer, he said that “We’re lucky enough to be able to deal with players who are expiring but who still show admirable work every day.”

“I’m talking about Perisic, Handanovic, but also Ranocchia,” he added. “When we talk about Perisic and Handanovic we’re talking about professionals who we will speak with and hope to agree extensions, they deserve to have their status confirmed.”

“We have to sit down and continue the talks, without haste, because they’ve shown that they want to keep wearing this shirt and that they are valuable players,” Marotta emphasized.

And of the transfer links with some young players from Sassuolo, he said that “Sassuolo have a classic model of football based on youth and carefree attitude, which has allowed them to beat Juve, Milan, and Inter, with top players who will be able to play at a high level in the future.”

“But the team itself has a lightness, and this allows the players play at their best,” he added, “they express themselves at their best, and attract the attention of the biggest teams. I am pleased for the club and for their CEO.”
