A report claims that Luka Modric is determined to leave Real Madrid for Inter Milan, which may force Los Blancos to turn to Thiago Alcantara of Bayern Munich.
Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric is reportedly determined to push through a move to Inter Milan before the end of the month.
The Croatia international is said to have informed the European champions of his desire to leave upon his return to training.
Sky Sport Italia claims that Real president Florentino Perez is reluctant to sell any price, however, and a personal meeting will be arranged.
Reports in Italy suggest that Los Blancos privately fear losing the 32-year-old and have lined up Bayern Munich ace Thiago Alcantara - formerly of rivals Barcelona - as a replacement.
Modric, who is expected to play a part in next week's UEFA Super Cup clash against Atletico Madrid, was named the best player at this summer's World Cup.
