It’s been a difficult season for Real Madrid and they are set to have a fire sell in the summer. One player who is likely to leave is Mateo Kovacic, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United, according to the Express.

United are keen to snap up the youngster on a cheaper deal with him being out of favor at the Spanish giants.

Jose Mourinho is apparently keen to improve his midfield options with a host of midfielders set to leave the club, including Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick.

When asked abut a possible transfer for his client, Kovacic’s agent Nikky Vuksan refused to rule out a move, saying:

I would prefer not to answer that. Let’s say, no comment.

The player is under contract until 2021 but has started just 10 games this season.
