The player has been heavily linked with a move to a number of clubs in England but he wants to fight for his place at Inter, and looks set to pen a new deal.

“Yes, it is official Brozo will stay in Inter,” Bicanic told Goal. “Otherwise, he would have been on the plane to London and not with national team in Sisak. After he returns from Croatia, Marcelo will sign a new, improved contract with Inter.

“With it he will earn less than he would have if he had signed for Chelsea, but he feels comfortable in Inter, he knows the city and the club will play in Europa League. He didn’t want to rush to England because there is a new coach at Inter.”
