Real Madrid star Modric open to Italy move amid Milan, Inter links: “I certainly like Italian football”

By Oliver Fisher -

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has seemingly opened the doors to a potential move to Serie A next summer amid links with both Milan clubs.

Milan have repeatedly linked with a move for Modric over the past few transfer windows, and the rumours have not gone away despite the fact the Croatian is now 35 years of age and appears to go against Elliott Management’s philosophy.

Defensa Central reported last month that there have been no contacts from the Real Madrid management regarding the possible renewal of his current contract, set to expire in June 2021.

They added that Inter have contacted Modric’s agent and told him that they will wait however long it takes to secure a deal with the former Spurs star, while the report added that Milan have also held talks with his representatives.

Modric spoke to Sky about the possibility of playing in Serie A when his contract expires, and he definitely didn’t rule it out.

“We will see what happens. Now I’m at Real Madrid, I still have one year on my contract and I’m happy to be here,” he said (via MilanLive).

“I certainly like Italian football, I grew up watching it and I like it a lot. Now I am happy in Madrid, but in football as in life you never know what will happen in the future.”

It is no secret that Modric supported Milan as a child and that his childhood idol was Zvonimir Boban, who was apparently in talks over bringing him to the Rossoneri when he was CFO.
