Real Madrid will not watch another of their key players leave at the same time, hence, they stopped the Modric deal from going through.

However, according to Sport Media Set, the 2018 FIFA World Cup golden ball winner wants to exploit the window of the market in January 2019.

The 33-year-old wants to be a part of Inter project while challenging Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus in the Serie A.

Both Ronaldo and Modric helped the Galacticos win three straight Champions League titles in the last three seasons before the Portugal international left the Spanish club last month.

After winning four Champions League titles at the Santiago Bernabeu, Modric wants a new challenge at a different club and in a different league.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that Real Madrid have reportedly made Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic their priority target should they lose Luka Modric this summer.

The Croatian superstar has been linked with a move to join Italian League giants Inter Milan before the start of a new season.

He was impressive for his national team at the recently concluded FIFA World Cup in Russia as they lost 4-2 to France in the final game on July 15.
