Man City transfer rumours
The Croatian international, formerly of Tottenham Hotspur, faces possible competition from Paul Pogba in the Real Madrid midfield next season, with the Spanish giants strongly linked with a move for the Juventus star in the same report.
Although Modric has been one of Real’s most important players in recent times, starring for them in their Champions League-winning campaign last season, it is thought that Pogba’s arrival would signal a likely exit for the 29-year-old.
City are planning a number of changes to their squad this summer, according to the article, and Modric is said to be one of their top priority transfer targets, though they also remain keen on Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere, whom they would ideally like to partner in the middle of the park with the ex-Spurs playmaker.
