Agent: Modric will play in Italy sooner or later
- Croatian agent Marko Naletilic: 'He really likes the idea of being in Serie A'
- The midfielder's future remains uncertain because of conflicting reports in both Italian and Spanish press
Famous Croatian agent Marko Naletilic has hinted at Luka Modric's potential arrival at Inter Milan in a recent interview with Tuttosport.
He said as quoted by Football Italia: “From what I know, not only has Modric thought about Inter, but he really likes the idea of being a protagonist in Serie A with the Nerazzurri.”
Naletilic is rather optimistic about Modric's sensational move: “We’ll see what happens. My feeling is that, sooner or later, he’ll play in Italy. Like many Croatians of his age, he grew up watching Serie A on television.”

Even though Diario AS stated on Saturday that Luka Modric decided to reject Inter's astronomical offer and stay at Real Madrid, the rumours linking him with Serie A move are still circulating. The Italian press, meanwhile, are adamant that the Croatian is still intended to join Inter
After Saturday's night friendly between Inter and Atletico Madrid, the Nerazzurri coach Luciano Spaletti has confirmed his side's interest in the Croatian, having also admitted that Modric is unlikely to join.
Spalletti at Wanda presser on Modric "That he has shown interest to join us is obviously positive, we are trying to create the right conditions for him to join Inter Milan. If Real Madrid wants to hold onto him, we would have to accept that, and I think that is what will happen."— Dermot Corrigan (@dermotmcorrigan) August 11, 2018
Can you imagine letting Modric leave?
