AC Milan line up for Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic
- Updated: April 28, 2016
According to the Spanish portal Bernabeu Digital, the Italian side will ask for the Croatian International services this summer on a loan move.
The great form of Casemiro has reduced the time Kovacic has spent on the field, also probably will reduce that he will spent at Madrid as the future of the Croatian midfield is in doubt.
Mateo Kovacic was one of the additions of Real Madrid for the current season, as the 21 years old midfielder was brought from Inter for €29 million. Anyway, the Croatian has not made an impression during his time at Santiago Bernabeu, since he played only 1000 minutes on the entire season – being unable to impress.
Kovacic has been a target for AC Milan before moving to Real Madrid, and the current situation has revived AC Milan interest. The Rossoneri has been suffering in the midfield on the last 2-3 season, as there have been lack of creativity.
Anyway the Serie A giants are not in a great financial position , and since Real Madrid will be looking for more than €30 million for the 21 years old midfielder , Adriano Galliani may come with a loan offer on the table.
The Croatian International might accept the offer since his playing time is very low and he will look to improve as a player, meanwhile the good relationship between Galliani and Florentino Perez might “be in use”.
