Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic has remained coy on his future amid growing speculation he could leave the Spanish capital this summer.

Kovacic, who could feature when Croatia take on England in their World Cup semi-final on Wednesday, fuelled talk of a transfer himself at the end of the 2017-18 season when he revealed he will seek a move this summer.

While he was handed starting roles in key Champions League ties against Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich in addition to an El Clasico meeting with Barcelona last December, the 24-year-old has grown frustrated with his role at the club.

Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea have all been credited with interest in the Croatian, with Inter, Juventus and Roma also keen to offer him a route back to Serie A following a two-and-a-half year spell with the Nerazzurri.

AS report Real Madrid do not plan to listen to offers for a player who is widely regarded as the heir to the Luka Modric throne for club and country.

But once again, Kovacic has failed to provide any assurances. When asked if he wants to continue at Real next season, he was quoted as saying by the same publication: ‘Let’s see.’

Kovacic’s release clause is said to be in the region of €500m, surely placing him out of the reach of any club in normal circumstances.

But should the midfielder formally request to leave, Real’s stance could change.

  1. Can anyone who knows tell us where our new manager gets money he spends on all those players because £ 70 m is not much. Papastopolus, Torreira, Leno and that French kid surely must have cost more than that? This man is different and I am beginning to feel that he might solve our perpetual problems of defending and losing players on free. It’s something that irked me when we lost Edu to some Spanish outfit. Since then, we lost bags of money with many players leaving for free. So Wenger did’not save us money by not buying, he lost lots of it not selling.
