Juventus Keen on Kovacic


Serie A champions Juventus are said to be interested in Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic.

Bianconeri have rekindled interest in the Croatian star and are willing to pursue a deal if he decides to leave the Champions League winners this summer.

Juventus have already been linked with the former Inter Milan star but were put off by his €75 million price tag. However, the Spanish media outlet Diario AS understands that Juventus are once again alarmed by the possibility of Kovacic leaving the Santiago Bernabeu and will follow the situation closely.

Kovacic is unlikely to reach his final decision until the end of the World Cup and until Real Madrid have appointed a new head coach.

The Croatian star is eager to get guarantees over playing time having been used sporadically during Zinedine Zidane’s time at the club.
