GdS: Boban wants Modric in January; Gazidis ready to block the deal

By Isak Möller -

It is no secret that Milan are looking to reinforce their squad in January, following the poor start to the season. According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (via, they are focusing on dissatisfied players. 

The newspaper claims that Milan could take advantage of a few unhappy players, who could consider leaving their club. That way, they will find it easier to convince them to join the Rossoneri project.

One of these players, per the report, is Luka Modric. The Croatian was heavily courted by Milan in the summer and his contract with Real Madrid expires at the end of the season. Zvone Boban, the CFO of Milan, has a great relationship with the player.

Therefore, if a new offer arrives in January, Modric might be more inclined to accept it compared to a few months ago. However, as the report continues, Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis would be against the operation.

It wouldn’t just be because of the age of the midfielder, but also because of the hefty salary. If there are advantageous conditions, certain vetoes could fall, but it is too early to talk about.
