Kovacic not training with Real MadridAugust 7, 2018
On Monday morning it was reported that Croatian star Mateo Kovacic failed to report to training as he plans on leaving Los Blancos.
The 24 year old has wanted to leave Madrid for a while now as previously reported here on La Liga News UK, now Kovacic has taken it upon himself to go on strike until his future is resolved.
The player has met with manager Julen Lopetegui numerous times to discuss his future with the club and repeatedly told him that he wants to leave, However Madrid have no plans to sell him anytime soon but it’s quite obvious why he wants to leave due to being behind Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro.
There has been a lot of interest in Kovacic with clubs like AC Milan, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester United.
However should one of those clubs decide a move for Kovacic they will have to meet his €50m release clause and the English clubs mentioned only have until Thursday to make a move before their transfer window closes, While Milan have until the end of the month like here in Spain.
Kovacic only made thirty six appearances in all competitions and failed to score a single goal and only managed three assists.
Yesterday was meant to be Kovacic first training session after getting an extended break due to his World Cup commitments.
