Modric retains Inter hope

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric is insistent upon joining Inter and has instructed his agent to formalise a deal, say Sky Italia.

The Italian club are thought to have offered Modric a six-year contract, which would see him play with them for four years, before spending two at their Chinese sister club Jiangsu Suning.

However, over the weekend reports in both Marca and Diario AS say Madrid will offer him a new deal which would ‘significantly increase’ his wage packet at the Bernabeu.

It is said the Croatian international has given the Nerazzurri a verbal agreement he will join while his deal at Madrid is said to have ‘a gentleman’s agreement’ that he could leave at his discretion.

That being said, Modric has been called up for Madrid’s European Super Cup clash with Atletico on Wednesday and the transfer window for Italian clubs closes on Thursday.

The 32-year-old’s agent Vlado Lemic must act quickly if a deal to the Milanese giants is to go through.
