Kovacic wants to quit Real Madrid
Real Madrid transfer news and rumours this month has been about Cristiano Ronaldo and the void he has left behind and the players Real Madrid needs to bring in to replace Ronaldo. Having said that, Matteo Kovacic transfer news has not come as a surprise for the Real Madrid hierarchy after Kovacic was quite vocal about his lack of playing time even during the FIFA World Cup 2018 where Kovacic claimed that he is open to a Real Madrid transfer away from Bernabeu if he cannot get regular playing time.
AS went on to report that Kovacic had talked with the new Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui about his concerns of getting into the first team and if he cannot get that, he would rather leave. AS have also confirmed that Kovacic is returning early from his summer break to once again put forward his Real Madrid transfer concerns in front of the manager and the board and then he will make a decision on whether he wants to play for Real Madrid next season or not.
Kovacic hurt by Champions League snubs
According to today’s Real Madrid transfer news and rumours, Matteo Kovacic transfer away from the club has been triggered by the fact that the Croatian midfielder failed to play a single minute in each of the 3 Champions League finals he has won with the club. Kovacic has the tall order of outplaying the likes of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Isco, and Casemiro and which is why Kovacic is pushing for a Real Madrid transfer away from the club with several teams interested in his signature.
Man City, Bayern, and Roma have received a NO from Real Madrid
AS can confirm that Real Madrid have already turned down 3 concrete offers for Matteo Kovacic which means that Real Madrid are aware of Kovacic’s quality on the ball and they know that Real Madrid will not find any player with the capability of replacing Kovacic for a fair price considering the current transfer market situation. Another club in the mix to sign Kovacic is Manchester United who could make a last dash bid to bring Kovacic to Old Trafford. Inter Milan are keeping a close eye on Kovacic transfer this summer as they are willing to go beyond 40-50million in asking fee if their deal for Bayern Munich’s Arturo Vidal falls flat. Premier League teams have until August 9 to try and sign Kovacic while teams across Europe will be able to sign him until the end of summer transfer window deadline, August 31.
