Following Cristiano Ronaldo's departure to Juventus, Modric, who starred at the World Cup for Croatia, has now been linked with Inter Milan.
According to reports in Italy, Inter ended their interest in Arturo Vidal, who has joined Barcelona, and have now turned their attention to Modric.
Los Blancos says the Croatian can only leave if Inter splash out €750 million, but Lopetegui says Modric will remain with the club this season.
"I talked to him [Modric] after the World Cup," Lopetegui said, according to Marca.
"We will talk on the eighth to see if he will be ready on the 15th, but he is a player that I am passionate about, a player I love.
"He is a Real Madrid player and will stay with us."
