Marcelo Brozović’s future at Inter Milan beyond this season remains uncertain as his current deal will run down in 2022.
The midfielder is yet to sign an extension at the San Siro, even if the Nerazzurri are keen to secure his long-term future.
While his contract situation is to be resolved, we relayed claims made in Italy last week that his agent has offered the player to other clubs, including Manchester United.
Inter Live now state the Italian champions’ priority is to tie down Brozović to a new deal and their goal is to close the renewal at about €5m, even if clubs willing to take him on a free transfer are not lacking.
The Red Devils are in the picture as the report states Manchester United are among the suitors who are ‘crazy’ about the Croatia international.
Faced with the possibility of losing the player as a free agent next summer due to the ‘complicated renewal’, Inter, for their safety, are looking at the market for his possible successor.
Bologna’s Jerdy Schouten has emerged as an ‘idea’ for Inter, if Brozović decides not to continue at the club beyond this season.
Inter finding it complicated to renew Brozović’s contract and also identifying his potential successor will only come as encouragement for the Croatian’s suitors, which includes United.
