Luka Modric has informed club captain Sergio Ramos that he wishes to leave Real Madrid, according to Diario Gol.
The player’s contract is soon expiring and he has begun to make contact with other clubs ahead of next summer.
Manchester United, Inter Milan and his former club Tottenham Hotspur have all been linked.
Luka Modric is set to end a six-year stay at the Santiago Bernabeu by telling Sergio Ramos of his desire to leave at the end of the season.
Since his move from Spurs back in 2012, the player has won three Champions League and one La Liga title.
Having taken his time to settle, the player has since flourished into one of the club’s best players and one of the best in the world.
It is understood that the Croation has already begun negotiations with Inter Milan over joining them next summer.
The 32-year-old was first contacted by the Italian giants and he is seemingly interested in the prospect playing in Serie A.
The source states that his most likely destination is the San Siro, opposed to a return to the Premier League.
Premier League interest
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho remains a big fan of Luka Modric, having signed the player when in charge of Los Blancos.
The Portuguese coach believes that Modric would add quality to his midfield and he is hopeful the club will make contact.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are also believed to be interested in their former player and could attempt an audacious bid.
