Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has been linked with Inter Milan.

A report from Sky Sport suggests that the Croatian is in fact interested in a change of scenery having won pretty much all there is to win while with Los Blancos.

Modric's agents have been contacted by Inter Milan chiefs regarding a move, which would see a large Croatian contingent installed at the San Siro, according to Di Marzio. Luciano Spalletti has trialled Kwadwo Asamoah in the midfield and if Spalletti intends to use the Ghanaian there then Inter will need to add another full back to their ranks.

And with Modric's stock higher than ever, Inter would have to dig very deep to prise the former Tottenham and Dinamo Zagreb man away from Spain, potentially putting such a strain on the club's coffers that they would be in danger of breaching Uefa's "financial fair play" rules.

Modric himself is happy at Real Madrid and enjoys his relationship with the club's supporters, the club itself and his teammates.

The club have hit financial hard in recent times and are desperate to return to the top of Italian football.

However, Spanish reports maintain that Madrid are confident they can hold their player to the contract signed in 2016 which pays him around €9m a year after tax. "The only possibility that Modric leaves is by paying 750 million euros".

The Croatia global was named the best player at the 2018 World Cup and has been a vital cog in Real Madrid's midfield as they lifted the Champions League title in each of the past three seasons.

Modric was the player of the tournament in Russian Federation and remains one of the leading midfielders in world football.
