The agent of Inter Milan’s Marcelo Brozovic has revealed there is a release clause in the midfielder’s contract.
Brozovic, who signed a fresh deal with the club last week, has a buyout clause of €50m for ‘overseas’ teams, effectively ruling out the potential sale of the Croatia international to another Serie A team.
Speaking to Calcio Mercato, Miroslav Bicanic confirmed there was a release clause for his client, who had previously been linked with moves to Juventus and Chelsea.
“Yes, I confirm. There is a valid clause for overseas 50 million,” Bicanic revealed.
“Marcelo is still not at 100 percent.
“For his potential, he still has great room for improvement to become a complete midfielder. This would make him among the best in Europe.
The arrival of Stefano Piolli as Inter’s most recent manager has had a positive effect on Brozovic, who scored twice in Inter’s 2-0 win over Genoa at the weekend.
“Pioli is perfect for Brozovic. He gave him the chance to show his qualities and Marcelo has repaid that faith with good performances,” Bicanic continued.
“Mr. De Boer didn’t understand the real psychological and emotional nature of Marcelo.
“Marcelo is now concentrated on Inter and results. He needed renewal as a confirmation of his qualities. It was closer to Juve at Chelsea but now we do not think of the past. Let’s see what the future brings.
“I’m sure that Inter will go back to the big time. The renewal gave Marcelo new motivation and confidence.”
Brozovic’s Inter are currently in ninth position in the Serie A, 15 points behind leaders Juventus.
