Juve approach Ballon d’Or winner Modric after Inter’s pursuit



After Inter’s summer pursuit, now Juventus are reported to have approached Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric.

According to Sport Mediaset, the Bianconeri made some enquiries as to the Ballon d’Or winner’s situation.

The Croatia international’s contract is due to expire in June 2020 and he does not seem intent on signing an extension.

Real Madrid were already furious that Inter were openly courting Modric, so the idea that Juventus are in the running too will no doubt cause further friction.

The Merengues tried to report Inter to FIFA for an illegal approach, but the Nerazzurri were cleared of wrong-doing.

Juventus already irritated Real Madrid by securing Cristiano Ronaldo for just over €100m and the Turin giants are targeting Isco as well.
