One of Real Madrid's superstars, who was heavily linked with an exit from the Spanish giants in the latest transfer window, will reportedly try to force a move away from the club in January.
Midfielder Luka Modric has had a terrific year for club and country, winning four trophies with Real last season and reaching the final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup with Croatia in July.
It surprised many when reports from Spain suggested he was open to a move away from Real during the recent window, amid rumours Inter Milan were chasing his signature.
Modric was apparently a big admirer of Italian football when he was younger, and dreamt of plying his trade in Serie A at some point.
Now 33 years old, the midfield maestro could plan to achieve that goal sooner rather than later, and according to Sport Mediaset, it could be as soon as the next transfer window.
Los Blancos refused to entertain offers for Modric in August, but might be open to selling him if he openly expresses a desire to leave the club.
The 2017/18 UEFA Men's Player of the Year might be excited by the prospect of joining up with his Croatian colleagues – Sime Vrsaljko, Marcelo Brozovic and Ivan Perisic – at Inter too.
If true, do you think Real should grant the player his wish? Let us know in the comments section below.
