According to reports from the “Corriere dello Sport” Real Madrid are interested in purchasing Mateo Kovacic in January, however this will not be an easy task, even in the June mercato. Ausilio is aware that the player has many admirers in Europe and Ancelotti is amongst those who would like to have Kovacic at their disposal but Inter are keen on hanging on to the player in the long term.
Due to the interested from abroad Inter has accelerated their efforts to renew Kovacic’s contract. Reports indicate that there could be a meeting in the next week and the contract could be signed before 2015. Regardless, if an offer of 35 to 40 million comes in it would certainly put Inter in the hot seat.
