Barcelona and Tottenham were reportedly interested in Marcelo Brozovic, but the midfielder has penned new terms with Inter.
Marcelo Brozovic has signed a contract extension at Inter that will keep him at the club until June 2026.
The Croatia international deal was due to expire at the end of the current season.
It leads to reports of interest from Barcelona, Manchester United, and Tottenham.
But the midfielder has ended the speculation by agreeing to new terms with the Nerazzurri.
The reigning Serie A champions confirmed the new four-year deal on their website on Wednesday.
Brozovic initially joined Inter on a one-and-a-half-year loan deal from Dinamo Zagreb in January 2015, with a conditional option for the Serie A outfit to buy.
The 29-year-old has since been an integral part of Inter’s success, playing a pivotal role under Antonio Conte as the Nerazzurri ended a 10-year wait for the Scudetto last season.
During the title-winning campaign, Brozovic was a pivotal figure at either end of the pitch.
He made a team-leading 324 passes into the final third in the league, resulting in six assists.
Brozovic managed 54 tackles, with only fellow midfielder Nicolo Barella registering more (58).
Similarly, only Barella (47) and Romelu Lukaku (52) created more chances than Brozovic (45), who played three games fewer than the pair’s 36 outings each.
Conte’s successor Simone Inzaghi has also placed faith in Brozovic in this campaign.
He has started 37 games in all competitions. A tally on Samir Handanovic (40) can be better among Inter players.
He again leads the Nerazzurri in numerous metrics in Serie A, making the most tackles (55), passes (1,924) and passes into the final third (251).
So, what’s next for Marcelo Brozovic and Inter FC?
Brozovic will hope Inter can return to winning ways when they return to league action against Juventus on April 3.
