A Real Madrid midfielder, who has previously discussed his plans to leave the club, is now reportedly refusing to train with the first-team squad as he looks to force a move away from the Spanish giants.
According to Marca, midfielder Mateo Kovacic has decided he will not train with Los Blancos' senior squad until his future is resolved.
During the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the 24-year-old spoke of his desire to play regular first-team football, something he has not had at Real since his arrival at the club in 2015.
It has been claimed that Kovacic has met with the club's board, as well as new manager Julen Lopetegui, to discuss his wishes to leave, but no progress has been made.
It is believed the player does not understand why the club are refusing to accept offers for him, especially as he has not been a key figure in the team.
Real have reportedly made Kovacic non-transferable, but the midfielder is now willing to do anything and everything to force his way out in this transfer window.
The Croatia international will stay at his home in the Spanish capital until the board are willing to negotiate his exit, and will not be showing up to training until then.
The midfielder has been linked with clubs such as Inter Milan and Manchester United so far in this window.
