Marcelo Brozović is in his final year of contract at Inter Milan and has caught the attention of Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.
On October 8th, FcInterNews reported the Blues and PSG have made a ‘serious approach’ to find out the possibility of taking the midfielder on a free transfer next summer.
It was also explained the player’s father, Ivan, who is also his agent, is set to meet the Italian club this week to discuss new contract.
Tuttosport now claim the Serie A winners’ intention is to secure the Croatia international’s long-term future ‘as soon as possible’, in order to stop him from leaving the club as a free agent.
The 28-year-old is happy with his life in Milan, both on and off the pitch. Ivan, along with the family’s trusted lawyer, will meet the Milan leaders.
It’s claimed that more meetings may be needed to ‘reach the definitive white smoke’ for the renewal. Marcelo’s camp are demanding €6-6.5m per season for the next four years. Simone Inzaghi’s side may not accept these conditions straight away.
Although the player’s representatives are unlikely to demand more, there seems to be an optimism of reaching a successful conclusion.
Thomas Tuchel’s side continue to monitor the situation and should they find out talks between Brozović’s camp and Inter aren’t progressing well, they are ‘ready to sniff out the deal’.
With Chelsea in the background, the Nerazzurri must be cautious when negotiating with the midfielder’s entourage.
