MARCELO BROZOVIC is reportedly set to turn down Newcastle's £100,000-a-week contract offer in favour of a stay at Inter Milan.
The Croatian midfielder's contract expires next June and has attracted interest from a host of top clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea.
But newly mega-rich Newcastle are also keen on acquiring Brozovic's services, and are willing to pay 'crazy money' to get their man.
Journalist Nicolo Schira is, however, reporting that the 29-year-old is set to snub a move away from Italy in favour of a stay at Inter.
Schira says Brozovic will extend his stay in Milan until 2025 and will earn just over £424k less a year than what the Magpies were offering him.
Newcastle also offered him an £850k bonus, which he's set to snub too.
A meeting is scheduled in the next few days to 'close the renewal' and put the transfer rumours to bed.
Inter boss Giuseppe Marotta says the club are 'very happy' to continue working with some of their out-of-contract stars.

He said: "We are very happy that we can continue with those who want to stay at Inter.
"We can't write millions of dollars in contracts, but if they want to stay I think we can go ahead and come to an agreement.
"I'm proud that Inter have a lot to give to the players and I'm not sure if that is the case anywhere else."
