Transfer: Modric finally decides to leave Real Madrid

Grant SmithAug 07, 2018

Modric's contributions were recognised with the prestigious Golden Ball award, crowning him the best player at the tournament in Russian Federation.

Spanish newspaper Marca report Kovacic refused to return to training on Monday as requested, and notified Real he will not return until his future is resolved. "One of recent history's most important players has left".

Recall that Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, had stated that any club that is interested in buying Modric, must pay his €750million (£670m/$870m) release clause. Inter want to take Modric on-loan for a year with the option to buy.

How could Real Madrid line up next season after the transfer window?

Lopetegui was asked if he had talked to Modric after his extraordinary World Cup, as the Croatian star led his country to the final where they ultimately fell to France.

Luka Modric is now 32 years old the Los Blancos are looking for a midfielder who can replace him in their starting line up.

"I told him he was a player I'm passionate about, I love him and he knows it".

The winger said: "We are calm, we have him and I have no doubt that he will continue here".

While reports said the Serie A side had agreed a deal with Bayern Munich's Arturo Vidal, Goal understands the Chilean midfielder is close to joining Real Madrid's La Liga rivals Barcelona. If I have spoken with Modric, I speak with my players when I decide to, but it's private. "That's how I feel but I'm not inside his head".
