Football transfer rumours: Luka Modric to join Inter from Real Madrid?

Real will then step up their efforts to prize Robert Lewandowski and Eden Hazard from Bayern Munich and Chelsea respectively. PSG chewed up and spat out Barcelona over the world-record signing of Neymar last summer and they are in no mood to give up their pursuit of N’Golo Kanté just because Chelsea are playing hard ball. The French champions are ready to blow Chelsea’s offer of £290,000 a week out of the water in a a bid to tempt the World Cup winning midfielder back to his home town during party season.Luke Shaw’s home town is Guildford, and he’s probably spent the last few years wishing he’d never left it after the way José Mourinho has ruthlessly toyed with his emotions. Help could be at hand though, with Wolfsburg keen to sign the 23-year-old. Shaw would rather stay at Manchester United apparently, having featured in Mourinho’s plans on their US tour. That has nothing to do with the fact United currently have 713 players absent without leave of course. Speculation is the one drug the Mill cannot do without so you can imagine the ecstasy when Mainz’s sporting director, Rouven Schröder, let slip that the Bundesliga side have rejected an “extraordinary offer” for their £30m-rated Ivorian starlet Jean-Philippe Gbamin – then refused to say which Premier League club had submitted it. Arsenal are the hot favourites, having long been on the tail of the 22-year-old central defender who can also play in midfield.Fulham want to sign the Wolfsburg midfielder Joshua Guilavogui. Lazio are finalising an £18m deal for Sevilla’s maverick winger Joaquín Correa. Everton are still hoping to address their striking problems by signing the £35m-rated Moussa Marega from Porto. And Ross Barkley has been pounding the streets in a bid to get his career back on track. Sorry, Ross who?

The move is said to have been worked upon with the utmost secrecy for weeks and Inter’s “great dream” could be about to become a reality. A midfield pairing of Modric and the newly acquired Radja Naingollan would certainly get the juices flowing. The back-up plan isn’t bad either, with Italy’s hibernating giants having lined up the signing of Arturo Vidal from Bayern Munich if Modric falls through.
