Juventus join Kovacic chase

Mateo Kovacic has reportedly been offered to Juventus for €25m, just a year after he joined Real Madrid.

The young Croatia international struggled for playing time under both Rafa Benitez and Zinedine Zidane, so could be released this summer.

Milan had already shown an interest, but wanted him on loan with an option to buy.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Real Madrid used the recent Champions League Final in Milan to offer Kovacic to Juve.

They are looking for a creative midfielder and Kovacic could well fit the bill, as well as being more readily available than first choices Andre Gomes, Miralem Pjanic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The former Inter man already has experience of Serie A too.
