Inter and Marcelo Brozovic have some work to do if they are to agree on a new contract, as the two sides are €1.5 million apart after initial talks.
The Croatian has cemented himself as a key figure in the middle of the park for the Nerazzurri, continuing the good form he showed under Luciano Spalletti with new boss Antonio Conte.
As a result Liverpool have been linked with a move for Brozovic due to the €60m release clause included in his current contract, but FcInterNews.it reports the Nerazzurri are keen to write up a new agreement.
The 27-year-old’s current contract runs until 2022, and with Inter looking to remove the release clause in the deal, they’re current offer stands at €4.5m a campaign.
Brozovic and his camp have so far responded by demanding €6m a season, and while both sides have made it clear they want to come an agreement, it remains to be seen whether the removal of the release clause will result in a higher yearly salary for the midfielder.
So far this season Brozovic has three goals in 32 appearances in all competitions.
