Inter Chief Marotta Optimistic, Brozovic Coyer on Extension Talks

Among all the new contracts Inter are currently negotiating, Marcelo Brozovic’s one figures to be thorniest. The current deal of the midfielder expires in June 2022. Multiple top teams are eying him for a potential Bosman move.

CEO Giuseppe Marotta discussed it in the lead-up of the Sheriff Tiraspol game: “The extensions are not an issue. Inter will keep only the players that want to be here. Brozovic told us that he intends to stay, like Lautaro Martinez and Nicolò Barella. The entire squad deserves praise on the management’s part for that. As for the Croatian, director Piero Ausilio and I will handle the matter in the next few weeks.”

Brozovic was asked about it in the post-game interview and did not look entirely on the same page as the executive. He told Mediaset: “We will see. I will have to understand what the club says to decide.”

Marotta also talked about what Inter are plotting for the next transfer market window in his remarks to Sky: “The January session does not always offer a lot of options. We have to solidify a group that deservingly won the Scudetto last season and got off to a good start in this one. By definition, it is a month where you try to repair some things. If the opportunity to do it presents itself, we will seize it.”

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter could add a couple of pieces if they made it past the group stage in Champions League. Otherwise, they will stay put.
