Kovacic on Real Madrid strike to force through transfer

Real Madrid Slap €60m Transfer Fee On World Cup Superstar With Inter Milan Interested £670million-rated Luka Modric sends Real Madrid message

Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui has said Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic are happy at the club, and the mood has not been affected by reports that both want to leave.

Thibaut Courtois will not be at Chelsea training today and has been asked to attend a meeting with the club tomorrow.

A move may be confirmed imminently, but if one club should be looking to hijack the move, it's Tottenham Hotspur - just as Chelsea did to them with Willian in 2013.

The report claims that Chelsea have reached an agreement with the player and the deal will be announced at some point on Tuesday.

And Marca claim that he will join the Stamford Bridge club on loan with an announcement "in the next few hours".

Lopetegui was asked if he had talked to Modric after his extraordinary World Cup, as the Croatian star led his country to the final where they ultimately fell to France.

The news will also be of great interest to Inter, however, as it could have repercussions on their pursuit of Kovacic's team-mate Luka Modric.

"You speak to me of problems with Kovacic, but this is the first I've heard of it", the Spaniard said. He's someone I hold in particular esteem, and who I am happy to have in the team.

With N'Golo Kante, Jorginho and Cesc Fabregas all already on Chelsea's books, Sarri's men would have arguably the most impressive central midfield options in the nation should Kovacic pen a loan deal this week.
