- Los Blancos place a huge £670m price tag on Luka Modric
- The Croatian captain have been linked with Inter Milan
- Real Madrid sold Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus for £100m
Real Madrid have slapped a €750m (£670m) price tag on their star midfielder Luka Modric to fend off interest from Inter Milan.
The 32-year-old was named the best player at the World Cup after leading Croatia to the finals as they eventually lost 4-2 to France.
Modric is still under contract with the Bernabeu outfit that will expire in June 2020 but reports in Italy claimed he wanted to join national teammates Ivan Perisic and Marcelo Brozovic at Inter Milan.
The European champions have already sold Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus £100m this summer and will not risk losing their enigmatic midfielder.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said: “The only possibility that leaves Modric is by paying €750m.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Real Madrid's Marco Asensio has been caught on camera trolling Loris Karius in the tunnel during pre-season friendly with Manchester United.
The Spanish international was heard shouting 'Karius, Karius' at his compatriot in a bid to poke fun at him, and Liverpool fans are not happy.
