Real Madrid Transfers: Luka Modric to Inter Milan?

Marco Asensio recently had to deny a move to Liverpool and Mateo Kovacic told to Marca that he wishes to leave the club.

Sky in Italy reported earlier in the week that Inter Milan had made contact with Modric's agents over a possible move.

Real are unsurprisingly not considering letting him go following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo - but Modric may force their hand.

In doing so, Inter can offset the deal over two financial years.

As for Inter Milan, they will be competing in the Champions League for the first time in six years and are building a squad to reestablish themselves amongst Europe's elite.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has revealed that Luka Modric is available to interested for clubs for £670m.

Currently, the deal seems highly unlikely to happen for a number of reasons.

The club have hit financial hard in recent times and are desperate to return to the top of Italian football.

"The only possibility that Modric leaves is by paying 750 million euros", says Perez of a potential exit before walking off.

However, Spanish reports maintain that Madrid are confident they can hold their player to the contract signed in 2016 which pays him around €9m a year after tax.

Modric is due back in Madrid to begin preseason training on Sunday, along with Mateo Kovacic and Raphael Varane who also took part in the World Cup 2018 final.

Modric was the player of the tournament in Russian Federation and remains one of the leading midfielders in world football.
