Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic rejected an offer to join Spanish giants Real Madrid this summer, preferring to extend his contract with the Nerazzurri.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the Merengues had approached the 29-year-old, but that he is committed to signing the extension with Inter.
Brozovic had become a serious target for Real after they saw him in action in the group stage of the Champions League for the past two seasons, whilst his compatriot Luka Modric also attempted to convince him to sign.
However, the Croat is happy with his role at Inter, where he knows he is at the heart of the team in midfield, and is all set to sign a new four-year deal worth a net of €6 million per season plus add-ons.
The La Liga leaders are far from the only club to have shown an interest in signing Brozovic in the summer when his contract expires, but he has long been in agreement on signing a new deal with Inter, which the club could announce as early as today according to Tuttosport.
