Agent: 'Kovacic stays at Inter'

Mateo Kovacic’s agent assured “he is staying at Inter. Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool interest was just rumours.”

The Croatia international has repeatedly been linked with a move away from San Siro after struggling to find his tactical niche under Walter Mazzarri and then Roberto Mancini.

“Mateo is very happy at Inter and will not leave,” agent Nikky Vuksan told

“This is for certain. We just renewed his contract to 2019 and therefore there is nothing more to add. His first outings in a new position went well and I’m happy for him.

“What about Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool interest? It was just rumours. Simple gossip put about by various media outlets.

“There was no truth in it. Mateo is staying at Inter.”
