According to Calciomercato, Real Madrid are reportedly looking to report Inter Milan to UEFA about the excessive pressure put on Luka Modrić to force a move away from the club as well as the financial structure of the deal being proposed through the Suning Group, who are the majority shareholders and owners of Inter Milan.
The rumor mill has been in full swing and Football Italia reports, from Corriere dello Sport, that Modrić would welcome a move to Italy and has favored a move the Nerazzurri. The Croatian superstar is set to hold crunch talks with Florentino Perez tomorrow morning with his agents to discuss his future at the club.
Modrić has not exactly been vocal about his desire to stay at the Spanish capital which has upset President Perez according to Sport. Real Madrid are extremely angry with both the player and his agents, Vlado Lemic and Predrag Mijatovic. They are under the impression that silence over the rumours is intentional as they look for one last big contract. I wonder where he learnt that from.
With rumblings of a deal being structured with the aid of the Suning Group in the pipeline, Inter Milan are determined to land their number one midfield target and offer Modrić an opportunity to cement his legacy in Serie A.
Having said that, irritating Real Madrid and Florentino Perez is not a smart move and spoiling a long standing relationship with the Los Blancos could prove to be costly in the long run especially if UEFA were to get involved and investigate the structure of the potential deal and any future transfers between the two clubs.
With Keita Baldé and Rafinha rumured to be the Nerazzurri’s fall back targets, Inter would be wise to wait for the Golden Ball winner to have his conversation with the Florentino Perez before making any more advances to gauge whether the move to Milan is viable or not. After a relatively successful summer transfer window, Inter could do without any unnecessary instability off the pitch which could derail their momentum going into the new season.
