According to Spanish sources, Luka Modric will renew his contract with Real Madrid and say goodbye to the temptation of Inter. But will it really be like this? Corriere dello Sport tries to outline the future scenario:
Nothing came of the summit with Florentino himself. Just as happened on Wednesday when Modric faced Jose Angel Sanchez, general director of the Merengues, who reiterated the non-transferability and the willingness to open up discussions for the renewal of his contract, a reward for his performance last season and at the World Cup.
Modric clearly expected a different communication and did not take it well. He tried to force his hand, but he understood that there is no room for manoeuvre. What will happen now?
The player’s entourage still keeps a door open, the same door Real has tried to shut by talking about the next renewal of the contract. When? After the end of the market.
If Modric does not resign himself to the idea of staying at the Casa Blanca, he will have to try and force his hand, by not presenting himself for example today in Valdebebas (he as expected has not been convened for the match against tonight’s Milan at the Bernabeu) or asking not to be called up for the Super Cup final.
It would be a thunderous tear. If he does not do this then he will become, after the end of the market, one of the highest paid players at Real and perhaps will have as a partner one of Thiago Alcantara, which Perez hopes to snatch from Bayern, or Milinkovic-Savic.
