Liverpool fans react to target Mateo Kovacic’s impending move to Real Madrid [Tweets]

At the same time as Sunday Telegraph report that Liverpool could yet sign Inter Milan’s Mateo Kovacic, news has broken on Sunday afternoon that the 21-year-old is on his way to Real Madrid.

The Telegraph farted today that “Brendan Rodgers is keen” on Kovacic, while Gazetta dello Sport claimed Liverpool would need to offer £21.3 million to get a dead done with Inter.

Now, however, Real Madrid boss Rafa Benitez appears to have landed Kovacic on a five-year deal for a reported €35 million.

Liverpool fans have been reacting on Twitter on Sunday to the news that Kovacic is heading to the Santiago Bernabeu, and while some Reds supporters are disappointed that they missed out on the Croatian midfielder, perhaps Liverpool could now move for Asier Illarramendi.

Liverpool are looking to boost their midfield options as Lucas Leiva is poised to leave Anfield soon.

Below are tweets from Liverpool fans on Mateo Kovacic’s impending move to Real Madrid.
