Real Madrid Will Only Sell Superstar For €750m
Spanish giants Real Madrid have insisted they will only sell a certain superstar of theirs, who has been linked with a shock exit, at a price of €750 million (R11.7 billion).
Midfielder Luka Modric has reportedly been targeted by Inter Milan – the club his Croatia teammates Sime Vrsaljko, Marcelo Brozovic and Ivan Perisic currently play for – in this transfer window.
Many believed that Real would be more willing to sell Modric than Mateo Kovacic, who is eight years younger than his Los Blancos colleague, but the Spanish club has now made it clear the former is not for sale.
President Florentino Perez recently spoke about Modric's situation in Spain, and insisted the club would only let him go for €750 million.
"Modric is not leaving Real Madrid," he said, according to AS.
"He is not leaving unless someone pays the €750 million of his release clause, and not a euro less."
Since joining Real in 2012, Modric has scored 13 goals and assisted a further 40 strikes in 257 matches, and won one LaLiga title and four UEFA Champions League trophies along the way.
