The transfer window is well and truly open. With the rumours growing in pace and volume during this ‘silly season’, it can be difficult and painstaking to separate the stories of some legitimacy from the rest of the white noise. Fortunately, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to do it for you. Below, you’ll find some of the latest transfer news churned out of the rumour mill broken down and analysed for your benefit along with our calculated predictions. Inter look set to resume their pursuit of Real Madrid star Modric this month, according to Sport Mediaset.
Prediction: Why it will happen:
The 33-year-old has a desire for a new challenge and to join compatriots Ivan Perisic, Marcelo Brozovic and Sime Vrsaljko in the Italian capital.
Why it won’t happen:
It is unlikely Florentino Perez will sanction a deal, unless the European champions can sign Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as a potential replacement.
The Nerazzurri have been pursuing the 2018 Ballon d’Or winner for some time. Next season could be the right time for the former Spurs man to move on after seven successful years in the Spanish capital.
