Modric: Inter claim ‘nonsense’

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has branded claims that he approached Inter ‘the biggest load of nonsense’.

It emerged over the weekend that Madrid could not accuse Inter of tapping up Modric as the Croatian had reportedly contacted the Nerazzurri via his agent, citing a desire to play with countrymen Marcelo Brozovic, Ivan Perisic and Sime Vrsaljko.

The story was posted on Instagram by the account ‘futbollalreves’, to which Modric replied ‘this is the biggest load of nonsense!!!’

The 33-year-old ultimately stayed with Los Blancos, appearing as a second-half substitute against Getafe on Sunday.
