The Croatian midfielder is ready to leave Real Madrid after having spent too much time on the bench. Liverpool, Tottenham, and Manchester United are interested too.
Monchi is screening the market to find a player able to cover the right flank but the Spaniard is also thinking to sign a new young and talented midfielder. Although N’Zonzi is a perfect profile for the Giallorossi, his release clause (€39 million) seems to be too high for a mature player. Monchi, Di Francesco, and Pallotta are implementing sustainable strategies, trading young players out for top-cash. For that reason, the French player could be on hold for a while.
The new name, which is a name that has been already linked with the Lupi, is Mateo Kovacic. The Real Madrid man is ready to leave the ‘Blancos’.
“I want to play more because I love football. I know that here in Madrid it’s difficult to be a starter. I think it’s best for me to go to another club where I will have the chance to play regularly”, Kovacic told ‘Marca’.
Three Premier League sides are reportedly interested in the player. Liverpool, Tottenham, and Manchester United are waiting for the right moment to make a bid but Roma seems to be ready to join the race for the Croatia international.
Although Real Madrid is reportedly asking €50 million for Mateo Kovacic, the price of the 24-year-old midfielder could be negotiable.
