Marcelo Brozovic has ended speculation about his future after signing a new deal that will keep him at Inter until 2021. It is reported that the new contract includes a nice increase in his wages from €1.4m per year to €2.5m including bonuses. The deal also reportedly includes a €50m release clause that can only be activated by foreign clubs, similar to what Inter did earlier this season when they gave Icardi a new deal.
Both Juventus and Chelsea tried to sign the former Dinamo Zagreb man this summer, but the Nerazzurri refused to even open negotiations, and have now tied down the 24-year-old.
“Marcelo Brozovic has signed a contraction extension until 2021,” a short statement on the Inter’s official Twitter profile confirmed.
The Croatia international had looked to be on the way out after problems with Frank de Boer, but has become a key figure again under new Coach Stefano Pioli.
“We are happy to have renewed the contract with Inter, as it is what the player wanted,” agent Miroslav Bicanic told Tuttomercatoweb.
“Now first of all he wants to reach the Champions League, then dreams of lifting some trophies with the Nerazzurri shirt.”
What do you think of the decision to give Brozovic a new deal?
