Inter keen on Modric

Modric’s agent, Sebastiano Durante, claims Mourinho was even interested in signing Modric while he was in charge at Chelsea.

“I hear these things on TV and read them in the newspapers
, but I don’t know if the two clubs have spoken about the player,” Durante told FcInterNews in an interview.

“The two clubs have a good relationship because Tottenham are interested in some Nerazzurri players [Marco Materazzi, Nicolas Burdisso, Sulley Muntari]. These are two teams that have been talking at the management level.”

He added: “[I think he would cost] no less than €25 million. Of course, Mourinho likes him a lot. He even followed him during his time at Chelsea.”
