Modric-Perez showdown talks tomorrow

Luka Modric will hold decisive talks with Real Madrid President Florentino Perez tomorrow, while Inter’s Croatian contingent reportedly confirm the player wants to leave the Bernabeu.

The 32-year-old, who recently captained Croatia to the World Cup final, has been the subject of what at first appeared to be audacious interest from the Nerazzurri.

However, his failure to report for pre-season training with Los Blancos at the start of this week, added to widespread reports in Italy and Spain that he has told Real officials he wants to leave, means Inter now have a lot of cause for encouragement.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Modric will finally make his way back to the Spanish capital today, flying into Madrid this afternoon along with his family.

And tomorrow, he is scheduled to hold decisive talks with Perez – who just last week said the playmaker would not leave Real for less than €750m.

It is expected that during the face-to-face meeting, Modric will inform the Bernabeu chief of his desire to pursue a new challenge.

Meanwhile, Gazzetta also claims Inter’s current Croatian contingent of Ivan Perisic, Marcelo Brozovic and new signing Sime Vrsaljko have told the club their international captain wants to move to San Siro.
