Juve to return for Madrid’s Kovacic

Juventus are set to launch a new bid for Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic this summer, according to reports in the Spanish press.

Diario AS say the Bianconeri are set to return for the central midfielder, despite seeing a €75m offer rejected for the player rejected by Madrid last summer.

The Croatian international joined Los Blancos in the summer of 2015 and has won three Champions League titles among nine trophies in the time period since.

The 24-year-old has started only 37 La Liga games across three seasons and started only 10 in his most recent campaign.

Kovacic joined the Spanish and European champions from Inter in 2015 in a €35m deal, having originally cost the Milanese giants €11m from Dinamo Zagreb.

The player has also been linked to both Milan and Inter alongside German club Schalke.
