- Inter Milan receive further boost in Luka Modric’s transfer chase as Real Madrid continue to sweat on Modric’s future
- Luka Modric wants Real Madrid to honor the gentleman’s agreement between the player and the club
In today’s latest Real Madrid transfer news, Luka Modric is set for a decisive conversation with Real Madrid President Florentino Perez as the Croatian edges closer to a transfer move to Inter Milan, reports Spanish journal AS. According to the latest Real Madrid transfer news, Modric is tempted by Inter Milan’s €10million-per-year in wages and the Croatian is hopeful of convincing Florentino Perez to let him leave in the summer under the gentleman’s agreement between the player and the club. However, AS have made a claim that Perez will not allow Modric to leave until any team pays his reported release clause of €750million.
Inter Milan yet to contact Real Madrid over Modric’s transfer
Despite strong rumours of Modric joining Inter Milan this month, AS understands that Real Madrid are yet to receive an official bid from Inter Milan, however, the Serie A club have reached a personal agreement with the player for a summer move to San Siro. The timing of Modric’s decision to join Inter Milan is a strange one given the fact how he won 3 back-to-back Champions League titles with Real Madrid and with Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, Modric was expected to be the leading figure in Real Madrid’s dressing room after winning the World Cup’s best player award.
Modric left out of Real Madrid’s kit unveiling
AS picked up on a story earlier today where Real Madrid’s social media team failed to put Modric on the cover of Real Madrid’s new home kit unveiling. Previously, it was Cristiano Ronaldo on the Real Madrid’s facebook cover page which now has been replaced by Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos, and Karim Benzema. Interestingly, Modric along with Isco were the marquee players who got the snub from Real Madrid’s social media team. Following this goof-up, rumours of Modric quitting Santiago Bernabeu has hit an all-time high with Inter Milan seem like the only possible destination if Modric ends up leaving Real Madrid this summer.
