Luka Modric transfer news: The midfielder has been speculated with a move away from Real Madrid.
Real Madrid have had a disappointing season in the league so far. The side has endured six losses in 20 league games, but climbed to the third position in the table after their win against Sevilla last night.
Casemiro scored a stunning goal in the later stages of the game to give Real Madrid the lead, while Luka Modric put the game to bed with a goal in the injury time.
The Croatian midfielder bagged all the major individual awards last year and continues to be a key figure in the Real Madrid midfield. However, Modric has been heavily linked with a move away from the club.
The midfielder was speculated to join Inter Milan, and their coach Luciano Spalletti even stated that the Italian club is in the process of creating the ‘right conditions’ for him.
“About Modric, it is the sporting director who deals with that. I am not sure how this will finish. That he has shown interest to join us is obviously positive, we are trying to create the right conditions for him to join Inter Milan,” Spalletti said after a pre-season game against Atletico Madrid.
However, Modric has now spoken about his future.
