Matteo Kovacic set to sign on loan from Real Madrid

Florentino Perez and Luka Modric

The midfielder returned from his World Cup holiday on Monday and is now training with Real Madrid's youth team.

It seems that the ball is now in Real Madrid's court.

The deal, which is not yet finalised, is said to please all three parties as the 24-year-old is guaranteed regular game time, Chelsea will have another option for their midfield and Real do not permanently lose out on a player they still rate highly.

Luka Modric, the Golden Ball victor at the World Cup, is the only player yet to return to training after the World Cup.

Inter's hopes of signing Luka Modric from Real Madrid have received a huge boost after the club's parent company Suning offered to help pay the Croatian's wages. It's there he will have a meeting with Florentino Perez to discuss his future, although the president won't sell for less than the €750m stated in his buyout clause.

"I think the president said it, I don't think there's much more to add", the manager told a news conference, according to FourFourTwo.

"He's an extraordinary player and we await his arrival [to pre-season] with open arms".

"I told him he was a player I'm passionate about, I love him and he knows it. We've enjoyed having him and we'll continue to do so".

Real Madrid are only willing to make a move for Pjanic if Luka Modric leaves them, and in case he leaves they will they make a move for him, but Juventus are likely to demand £100 million for the former Roma midfielder.

TMW says Inter and Modric's camp have settled on a three-year contract for the Croatia global.
