Inter Milan senior member Giuseppe Marotta says that he is optimistic about agreeing a new long-term deal with Marcelo Brozovic.

The Croatia midfielder is being targeted by a host of clubs, including Manchester United, at a time when the player has just over seven months remaining on his current terms at San Siro.

With the 29-year-old star soon to be in a position where he can hold talks with foreign clubs, Newcastle United are also understood to be monitoring the situation surrounding Brozovic.

However, Marotta is confident that he’ll back up the renewals with Lautaro Martinez and Nicolo Barella by convincing Marcelo to stay in Italy.

Speaking to Sky Italia, I Nerazzurri CEO said: “We are aware of the importance of offering players an attractive destination. Inter have a history of success, players understand this and I am optimistic about the renewals.

“We managed to find agreements with Barella and Lautaro and we will continue with the rest.”

The former Dinamo Zagreb star has started each of his side’s 19 matches in Serie A and the UEFA Champions League this season.

Elsewhere, Barcelona have allegedly enquired over the availability of Manchester United forward Anthony Martial.

The 25-year-old star has struggled to make his mark for his team during the 2021-22 campaign, scoring just one goal in nine matches in all competitions.
