Brozovic and Miranda among Inter players awarded new contracts

No less than six players have received new deals at San Siro, with the Croatia and Brazil internationals prominent among the sextet

Inter have announced a host of new contract extensions for their first-team stalwarts, with Marcelo Brozovic, Antonio Candreva and Miranda among those rewarded. 

The Italian giants have made a mixed start to the new season after reinforcing heavily over the summer. 

Luciano Spalletti's charges currently lie third in Serie A, six points shy of leaders Juventus; while in the Champions League they sit a comfortable second in Group B after wins over Tottenham and PSV. 

It has been a busy week away from the pitch, too, with no less than six players renewing their links with the Nerazzurri. 

"Inter are happy to announce that Marcelo Brozovic, Antonio Candreva, Henrique Dalbert, Roberto Gagliardini, Joao Miranda and Matias Vecino have extended their contracts with the club," Inter revealed in a statement published on their official website

Brozovic put pen to paper on a four-year extension, with his contract now set to run until 2022 at San Siro. 

Candreva, meanwhile, will stay until June 2021, with Brazil international Miranda signing through to 2020, when he will be 36. 

Vecino, who has become a regular starter in the Inter engine room, also extends his link to 2022, while Dalbert and Gagliardini have signed until June 2023.

Having been comprehensively beaten by Barcelona midweek in the Champions League, Spalletti and Inter will be hoping for better fortunes in Serie A on Monday, when they visit Lazio in a battle between the teams currently in third and fourth place.
