La Liga By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 01/08/2018

Real Madrid star Mateo Kovacic has rejected a move to Manchester United after the Premier League reportedly failed in an attempt to sign the midfielder.

The 24-year-old revealed earlier this summer that he wanted to quit Santiago Bernabeu in order for regular playing time.

According to Marca claiming that Red Devils have shown an interest in signing Croatia international as both Manchester City and Chelsea have been linked with former Inter Milan star.

However, the report suggests that Kovacic has decided against entertaining a switch to Old Trafford due to a belief that he will not fit the playing style of manager Jose Mourinho.

Kovacic has made a total of 109 appearances in his three years with Spanish capital club winning three Champions League and La Liga.
