Inter plan ahead for Modric

Inter are already planning for next season, claim Spanish newspaper Sport, as Luka Modric could be available from Real Madrid.

The Nerazzurri had already targeted Ballon d’Or winner Modric in the summer of 2018 and were rebuffed, but the situation has changed substantially.

Antonio Conte is now at the helm, the club is investing heavily and above all the Croatia international’s contract is due to expire in June 2021.

It’s also fair to note that Modric will be 35 in September, so it all points to his departure from the Bernabeu.

Conte has complained at the lack of Champions League experience in his current squad, so Modric would represent a real boost in that respect.

He’d help younger players such as Stefano Sensi and Nicolò Barella to develop, also adding prestige to the club that is currently negotiating for Christian Eriksen from Tottenham Hotspur.

Sport point out that the midfielder would not be allowed to leave in January, but a summer exit is more than possible.
