Modric likes Perisic post teasing Inter move

By Sports Desk August 10, 2018

Luka Modric perhaps suggested he is interested in a move to Inter by liking a social media post from Croatia team-mate Ivan Perisic.

Modric has been strongly linked with the Serie A side despite being an integral part of a Real Madrid team that has won four Champions League titles in five years.

After starring for finalists Croatia at the World Cup, where Modric was awarded the Golden Ball for the tournament's best player, Inter emerged as serious contenders to sign the 32-year-old.

Modric is yet to comment on the speculation, although new Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui is determined to keep him at the Santiago Bernabeu and the player has returned to training.

Inter have already signed one Croatia international in this transfer window, bringing in right-back Sime Vrsaljko from Atletico Madrid.

Perisic welcomed Vrsaljko to Inter in a social media post on Friday, tagging in another international colleague, Marcelo Brozovic, and using the hashtag #WhoIsMissing?

Modric was cheekily tagged in the post by Perisic and the Madrid midfielder has even liked the post.

Madrid have already lost one of their star players heading into the 2018-19 season, five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo leaving for Juventus in a deal worth €112million.

  • Casillas takes swipe at Mourinho after United lose at Liverpool Casillas takes swipe at Mourinho after United lose at Liverpool

    Iker Casillas appeared to aim a broadside at Jose Mourinho following Manchester United's 3-1 Premier League defeat to Liverpool.

    Mourinho's men endured a chastening trip to Anfield on Sunday, with Sadio Mane and a Xherdan Shaqiri double giving the league leaders a deserved victory.

    United sit sixth in the table, 19 points behind Liverpool and with a goal difference of zero, having picked up their worst points total after their first 17 games since 1990-91.

    Casillas wasted little time in seemingly taking aim at Mourinho, who had disparagingly described the former Real Madrid goalkeeper as someone near the end of his career in a recent interview with Portuguese newspaper Record.

    "According to a Portuguese newspaper, someone said that a player like me (37 years old) is at the end of their career. I completely agree!" Casillas wrote on Twitter.

    "My question, for this newspaper, is: in the case of coaches, when and at what moment do you see they are no longer leading or training a team?"

    Casillas and Mourinho endured a difficult relationship during the turbulent final few months of the coach's time in charge of Madrid in 2013.

    Spain great Casillas told Jorge Valdano in an interview for Vamos that given the chance to repeat that time at the Santiago Bernabeu he would have "taken the bull by the horns and faced Mourinho".

    That prompted Mourinho to state that the Porto keeper's comments were "typical of someone who is at the end of his career".
