Mateo Kovacic is reportedly does not want to move from Real Madrid to Manchester United this summer amid speculation the Premier League side have offered €60 million (£53 million) for his services.
According to Marca (h/t Sport Witness), the Red Devils are admirers of the Croatia midfielder, who has stated already this summer he is considering his options, and the club made a massive offer for the Los Blancos man. The club are even reported to have appointed an intermediary to help with the deal.
Kovacic, however, isn’t said to be too exicted by the prospect of the switch to Old Trafford as he is not a fan of Jose Mourinho’s style of football.
Kovacic wants to leave Real Madrid, though, and he will reportedly make that point clear to the club once again this week.
Chelsea have also approached Madrid about the prospect of signing the 24-year-old, while Manchester City have also shown an interest in the former Inter Milan man.
Kovacic will head into the 2018-19 campaign on a high, as he helped Croatia make it to the final of the FIFA World Cup this summer. While he wasn’t a regular starter for the team, the midfielder produced some cameos off the bench throughout the tournament.
