According to FCIN, Luka Modric rejected a huge contract offered by Real Madrid just before Christmas. The Spanish club president, Florentino Perez, proposed a renewal until 2022 at €12M per season. The refusal by the Croatian midfielder is a great news for Inter as Giuseppe Marotta is preparing to attack when summer comes around. The offer of Inter is likely to be €10M per season, lesser than that of Real Madrid but money is not the issue here. Modric would like to trace the footsteps of his idol Zvonimir Boban to experience Serie A for the first time in his career.
