Chelsea Set To Complete Loan Signing Of Real Madrid Midfielder Mateo Kovacic

Luka Modric Real Madrid 2018

With Real Madrid having already sold star player Cristiano RONALDO, it appears hard that they would also let go of a second star player.

While Modric seems ready to make a move to Italy, it's going to have to come at a hefty price as Real Madrid president Florentino Perez noted last week.

The La Liga transfer window closes on 31 August and Kovacic wants to move away from Madrid before the transfer window shuts down.

The Croatian midfielder had been linked with a move to Tottenham, who are enduring a bit of an injury crisis in midfield at the moment, but unsurprisingly Spurs have not made a viable offer for the player, despite the fact that he would be the ideal fit.

On Monday, Kovacic reportedly chose to train alone at "Ciudad Deportiva" in order to decide on his future and potentially force an exit.

Arsenal nearly cut Alex Iwobi loose
Instead, Didier Deschamps made a decision to favour Olivier Giroud as his main striker, the player Lacazette replaced at Arsenal . But Arsenal have let a number of players' - including Sanchez and Ozil - contracts run down, and it cost the club in the end.

The midfielder is desperate to leave the Bernabeu this summer in search of regular game time.

25-year-old Croatia worldwide Kovacic moved to the Bernabeu for £25 million in 2015 from Inter Milan, but rather unsurprisingly he has struggled to dislodge Los Blancos superb midfield triumphant of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro.

Nevertheless, Lopetegui remains confident that he can persuade the former Dinamo Zagreb and Inter Milan player to stay.

"He is a player I particularly like and I am very happy to have him in the team".

As noted by Calciomercato, it's been claimed that the 32-year-old is keen on a switch to join Inter this summer as he seemingly eyes a new challenge.
