Real Madrid boss speaks out as Mateo Kovacic agrees deal

Florentino Perez and Luka Modric

Luka Modric will tell Real Madrid that he wants to leave for Serie A giants Inter Milan this summer. This effectively meant such a deal would be impossible to crack, considering the modest figures that Inter Milan had initially planned for the World Cup Golden Ball victor.

Chelsea are reportedly set to snap up Tottenham Hotspur target Mateo Kovacic on loan.

Real Madrid Croatian star shunned training with the rest of the squad in a bid to force a move out of the team.

The move would be similar to Ronaldo's to Juventus, where his salary is paid through sponsorship agreements with FCA.

Modric will then complete a move to Inter as the Italians are ready to lodge a €35m bid on Modric, offering the midfielder a four-year contract.

Jorginho and Riyad Mahrez handed starts in Community Shield
But they produced a controlled and efficient performance to secure their third piece of silverware in the past six months.

That significant increase is said to be very tempting for Modric, but he has not made up his mind just yet. According to Spanish newspaper AS, the midfielder will sit down with Julen Lopetegui when Madrid return from their pre-season tour of America.

Kovacic has been agitating for a transfer in the close season and told the Spanish daily in June that it was owing to his lack of first-team chances.

Milinkovic recently stated that he is happy at Lazio but "in football you never know what happens".

UEFA Champions League holders Real Madrid have snapped up the teenage son of former Barcelona, Chelsea and Iceland star Eidur Gudjohnsen. "He is not leaving unless someone pays the 750 million euros of his release clause and not a euro less".
