Mateo Kovacic has made it known that he wants to leave Real Madrid this summer, with both us and Manchester United keen on signing the player, according to the Sun.

The Croatian international says he is keen to get regular first-team football, and he is willing to leave the Bernabeu to get it. He was quoted by Marca as saying:

“I want to play more and the best thing is to leave Madrid. I love football and being on the pitch, I want the opportunity to be a starter for another team.”

Last season, he made 36 appearances in all competitions for Real but made just 20 starts under manager Zinedine Zidane.

Kovacic would likely be a candidate to replace Mousa Dembele if the Belgian international leaves the club. The 24-year-old plays in a central midfield role, but is also capable as a holding midfielder.

His key strengths in passing, dribbling and through balls would make him a good fit for replacing our no.19. The cost of the deal would likely be high with Real reluctant sellers, as well as competition from other clubs.

  • Absolutely no chance will Levy pay anywhere near that for him, that’s why we’ll miss out on him too.

  • Reckon Dembele’s staying and add Sissoko and Winks to that and as far as the club are concerned we are sorted!

  • A lot of fans seem to know more than Poch, as in we need this, that type of player blah blah, has any one thought that maybe he is happy with what he has and has a little inkling of who he might want and who to sell to just add that little bit more to the squad, after all we ain’t done to bad in the last 3 seasons have we.

    All we hear is Spurs are interested in every Tom, Dick or Harry from the Spurs hating media, every transfer window, I know its frustrating but I believe Spurs do their utmost to keep things quiet/secretive. COYS

  • All I know is if sissoko still apart of the squad come next season we’ve had disastrous summer transfer market.clear out the dead wood. Donkey sanctuary quite possibly interested in him.

  • “We are doing fine” are we, what have we won , how many trophies do we have to polish. Anybody who believes our squad could not, or should not, be improved, in order to close the gap on those winning things is surely deluded.

    • It’s a certainty Poch wants new players. His message at the end of the season was pretty clear. Whether he gets them in or not is another matter.

      “If we want to be real contenders for big, big trophies, we need to review a little,” Pochettino said.

      “First of all, I need to speak with Daniel, then we will know what we are going to do.

      “I think it’s a moment the club needs to take risks and if possible work harder than the previous season to be competitive again.”

      That is not a manager that intends on standing still.
