Real Madrid playmaker Luka Modric is reportedly a target for Premier League duo Chelsea and Arsenal. The London rivals are joined by Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain as teams interested in the Croatian schemer this summer.

A report from Spanish website Diario Gol (h/t James Walters of the Daily Star) detailed how key man Modric may be deemed expendable by Los Blancos this summer.

Walters’ report said: “Club president Florentino Perez is keen to rejuvenate the starting XI and bring in younger players.” 

Modric may even be open to a move himself, as noted by Walters: Diario Gol reckon the midfielder could be keen on pursuing a new challenge outside of La Liga.”

Selling Modric would be a significant move from Real, and one not without risks. After all, the 31-year-old is the chief conductor of passing in manager Zinedine Zidane’s team.
