Modric has been a driving force behind Madrid's remarkable run in the Champions League in recent years and was equally important as Croatia went all the way to the World Cup Final in Russian Federation.

Having featured for Croatia in the World Cup final in Russia, Kovacic wants a more prominent role in club football.

As things stand, Luka Modrić is said to be leaning towards leaving Real Madrid for Inter Milan.

Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti has confirmed his club are putting together a deal to sign Real Madrid star Luka Modric.

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.

"The suspect allegedly stuck a black handgun to the boy's stomach, demanded money and fled the scene on foot", the office stated. Deputies believe the suspect left a bicycle in the brush for his getaway. "That one takes it to a new level".

The former Inter Milan star has reportedly been training on his own since his return from holiday - the midfielder had an extended break due to his participation at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. Modrić is thought to favour a stay at the Bernabéu as long as the club give him a new contract to match Inter's offer.

The Croatian wants to speak with the club and new coach Julen Lopetegui when the squad returns from their US tour.

Italian reports suggest Inter want to make a statement signing in midfield as they aim to topple Juve at the summit of Serie A next season.

Florentino Perez has already addressed rumours of his departure, and named a massive price for any potential suitors.

Real have endured a rocky summer, losing Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus and failing to land a 50-goal-a-season replacement.
