Inter Milan is willing to re-sign the midfielder and they made an attempt to bring him back during the January transfer but Real Madrid was unwilling to do any business during the winter transfer.

However, their sporting director Piero Ausilio still wants to get the deal done and will return in the summer, but his AC Milan counterpart Massimiliano Mirabelli – who worked at Inter – is also a big fan of Kovacic.

Don Balon also reported that Manchester United has registered their interest in signing Kovacic

Meanwhile, the Spanish paper also claimed that Real Madrid will be eager to include the 23-year-old in the deal to trigger the deal for David de Gea
