Real Madrid interested in Kovacic, Liverpool aims for Illarramendi

In the latest updates La Liga BBVA giants Real Madrid have shown keen interest in Inter Milan midfielder Mateo Kovacic who has bee linked with Liverpool all summer long. If this is the case, it might set a dominos effect in transfers.

If Kovacic has become a center of Madrid’s attention that could only mean the former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is looking for future prospects as they already have Toni Kroos and Luca Modric high up in the squad.

If Inter gives up Kovacic, they might be intested in the Reds’ Lucas Leiva, who has also been linked with Inter this transfer window. If Inter is willing to take Leiva, Liverpool might be in a position to make a convincing bid on Asier Illarramendi at Bernabeu, who has been Liverpool’s interest this summer.

Former Liverpool boss Benitez might do his former team a favour and leave Illarramendi up for grabs.
