AC Milan have learned the price tag they would have to pay in order to sign Luka Modric from Real Madrid in January, a report claims.
The Rossoneri were heavily linked with a move for Modric over the summer, with reports even stating that a contract offer was being prepared for the Croatia international, with Real having set an asking price of €20m.
A report earlier on Wednesday claimed that Paolo Maldini and Zvonomir Boban are ‘focusing on dissatisfied players’ to help add experience to the squad.
Modric was mentioned as one of the names in particular that Boban wants, though the report did claim that CEO Ivan Gazidis would block the deal as it goes against the strategy of owners Elliott Management.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by Calciomercato.com – Boban does indeed ‘dream’ of bringing his compatriot to the San Siro.
Milan have apparently learned that the price tag of the current Ballon d’Or holder would be €10m in January, and he currently earns a salary of €10m-a-year on a deal due to expire next summer.
