Real Madrid’s management ought not to try to replace Luka Modric
After all, it would be quite difficult to find a player of the same calibre who defined an age. But the Croat has always had a lot of respect for his fellow countryman Marcelo Brozovic. The profile of the Inter Milan player is one that Carlo Ancelotti and Los Blancos are quite interested in.
Several European clubs have Brozovic on their transfer wish lists for the upcoming transfer window. Barcelona has been cited as a front-runner among them. The Italian management is aware that the manager can function without Brozovic and that it is appropriate to move ahead with financial compensation at this time.
Real Madrid is one of the top contenders in the race to recruit him, claims the source. Given that he is under contract in Italy until 2026, the European Champions will have to pay at least €30 million for his services, which Inter believes is what he should be worth.
There are other contenders for Brozovic besides the Merengues. Barcelona is back in the mix because they regard him as the perfect Sergio Busquets successor. Chelsea is the third European powerhouse with an interest in the 30-year-old Croatian international. Juventus wanted to try their luck as well, but was had to withdraw due to recent fines.
Given their interest in Jude Bellingham, it remains to be seen if Real Madrid will be able to pay the €30 million price tag in the summer. The Englishman will take up over €150 million of their budget, and investing more in a different midfielder might not be necessary.
