Former Real Madrid director Predrag Mijatovic has claimed there is no chance of Luka Modric joining AC Milan this summer.
Speculation linking the Rossoneri with a move for Modric refuses to go away, with suggestions that club’s leadership are in the market for a top class midfielder to help Marco Giampaolo implement his favoured 4-3-1-2 system.
It was even claimed by Mediaset on Wednesday that Milan are preparing a contract offer for the Croatia international, with Real having set an asking price of €20m.
Now Mijatovic – the former director of football at Real Madrid – has tried to cool speculation that his close friend Modric could leave the Bernabeu this summer.
“Modric? He is very happy at Real Madrid, I am his friend and I can say that he will stay,” he told Cadena Ser (via Calciomercato.com).
“He is not a player who can enter into any operation, he is the Ballon d’Or holder.”
