Inter retain hope of signing Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric this summer despite the Italian transfer window imminently closing, say reports.
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.
Calciomercato.com now say the Croatian international is the only player on the Nerazzurri’s wishlist, following reports in Sky Italia that he has given the club a verbal agreement that he will join.
Various reporters say his deal at Madrid is said to have ‘a gentleman’s agreement’ with president Florentino Perez that he could leave at his discretion although Madrid may renege on this deal.
Modric featured for Madrid’s European Super Cup clash with Atletico on Wednesday and the transfer window for Italian clubs closes at the end of the week.
The 32-year-old’s agent Vlado Lemic must act quickly if a deal to the Milanese giants is to go through.
