United Linked with Real Madrid Midfielder
Although the transfer window is closed, it doesn`t stop speculation appearing in the media as to whom Manchester United might be viewing as potential summer transfer targets.
Today, Manchester United are linked with a player who is currently on the books of Real Madrid but, for once, it isn`t Cristiano Ronaldo or Gareth Bale.
According to the local news source, the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United are casting an envious eye in the direction of Mateo Kovacic.
Kovacic, a 23-year-old Croatian midfielder, isn`t a regular in the Real Madrid starting eleven and the feeling is that he might like to try his luck elsewhere.
But, according to our referenced source, Manchester United are not the only club showing an interest in the player with Juventus, Inter Milan and Tottenham Hotspur all getting a mention.
However, the sticking point in any proposed deal is that our aforementioned source is also inferring that Real Madrid are not prepared to sell at any price.
