“I know for a fact we want to have him around here,” Bromwich said on Tuesday.
“He’s doing all right. He took that having a rest quite harshly, but that’s just him. He’s a competitor and he wants to be out there competing.
“That’s just rumours. From what I know, and I’m quite close with Curtis, he’s happy here.
“He’s been training really well. Just competing and that’s the best thing about him. The way he competes in the games what makes him the player he is.”
The Storm did make a new signing on Tuesday with utility back Nico Hynes to stay at Melbourne until the end of 2020.
Hynes comes from feeder club Sunshine Coast Falcons and he comes in after outside back Cheyse Blair signed with an English Super League club earlier in the season.
Bromwich also addressed claims from Sharks captain Paul Gallen that Storm skipper Cameron Smith and Cameron Munster were arguing after they messed up their last play in Friday’s loss.
The Storm wouldn’t engage with Gallen’s comments due to him being a critic of the club over several years but Bromwich said it was a non issue.
“That kind of stuff happens all the time here,” Bromwich said.
“If something happens and we don’t agree with it then we give the advice and pass it onto the other players. In terms of being united and all that stuff. It’s just another day here.
“That stuff happens and it moves on. I’ve seen them have that kind of talk at training and no one said anything. If they are showing that passion and willingness to compete then we are happy for that kind of stuff to happen.
“There is nothing going on there and we move on.”
The Storm have issues with their attack and players being out of position for their play calls, but Bromwich said the team spent Monday addressing those problems and expect to bounce back this week.
“It’s no secret we haven’t been at our best, in my opinion, for the last month,” Bromwich said.
“Bellsar [Craig Bellamy] wasn’t happy with our performance on the weekend and we addressed that on Monday and we’ve moved on,” Bromwich said.
“Spirits are quite good heading into this weekend.”
Melbourne Storm play Parramatta at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday at 7.50pm as part of the NRL’s Magic Round.
