Il Giornale reports Real Madrid President Florentino Perez would accept a deal worth €60m for Inter target Luka Modric.
The 32-year-old is due to return to Madrid from his summer holiday until Wednesday, ahead of reporting for pre-season training with Real and holding talks with Perez.
Perez publically stated earlier in the week that he would not consider selling Modric for anything less than the €750m release clause in his contract.
However, Inter are hopeful of landing Modric is the World Cup star tells Perez that he wants to leave.
If Modric hands in a transfer request, Il Giornale believe the Nerazzurri would open with an offer totaling €40m, an initial €15m loan fee, followed by the option to sign him permanently next summer for a further €25m.
And the Italian daily claims this would enough to bring Perez to the negotiating table.
The newspaper states the Madrid President would want €25m for the loan, with €35m to make the transfer permanent.
The Nerazzurri have been in contact with Modric’s agents throughout the week, with a four-year contract reportedly proposed worth €11m a year (gross).
Putting it all together, Suning are prepared to invest €104m in Modric over the next four years. Its a lot of money for a 32-year-old midfielder, but with Modric he all but guarantees Inter a top four finish for the next four years. Meaning that the income from the Champions League will cover most of not all of this costs.
Do you think Luka Modric would be a good signing for Inter?
