“Let’s not rule out the possibility in the future that there may still be the pleasure of working with a footballer like Kovacic again.”
These were the words given by Piero Ausilio to Sky Sport. They are few but enough for Tuttosport to draw out an intricate market scenario that could bring back the Croatian.
Currently, Inter can only act as a spectator in negotiation between Real Madrid and Chelsea but should there be no agreement between these two clubs (Chelsea have option to buy him at the end of the season), Marotta and Ausilio would be ready to make a move, taking advantage of the excellent relationship with Mamic, the Croatian’s agent. There is not much that Inter can do besides waiting for a bad ending in negotiation, one that Florentino Perez could use Kovacic to land Eden Hazard. Between Modric and Kovacic, there is a big difference of €5.5M in wages (Modric makes €10M while Kovacic is at €4.5M).
