Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic is set to pen a new deal after turning down a more lucrative offer with Chelsea.
The Blues are reported to have agreed a £21million fee with Inter in an attempt to push through a deal before the deadline, only for the Croatian international to turn down the move.
Brozovic will now put pen-to-paper on a deal at the San Siro, and his agent Miroslav Bicanic says it will be nowhere near as big as the offer from the Blues.
It has also been reported that a £42million buy-out clause will be placed in the deal in an attempt to prevent Chelsea coming back with another bid in the January window.
“He’s happy to stay, he knows the city and loves to play for Inter,” Bicanic said. “The new contract will give him even more peace of mind, so that he can focus better on the field.
“Many clubs were interested in him, but is now the past. It concentrates only on Inter now.
“Chelsea? The contract would have been better but for Marcelo money is not everything. He has a challenge with Inter in the Europa League, hopefully in the Champions League next year.”
