Luka Modric is still a Real Madrid player because he never wanted to leave after a poor season, according to AC Milan director and fellow Croat, Zvonimir Boban.
AC Milan wanted to bring in the Croat over the summer, but the move failed to happen.
Speaking on the transfer saga, Buban said, “He is a big Milan fan, and has been ever since he was a child, so he had the passion to join us.
“However, we never got into concrete talks, he didn’t want to leave Real after a bad season.”
“In addition, he knows how to play in different roles. He can be deployed on both flanks or elsewhere.
“We are happy that he is with us because he is a serious boy, who has grown technically in recent years.”
“For Correa, we didn’t find ourselves on the same economic basis, and that is okay,”
“There were also other good players that we didn’t sign. We have a good squad, we made good signings and we will see over time how well we did.”
“It was a heavy window, I hope that FIFA will shorten the time.
“With the current dates, the teams and managers are stressed. Players come and go.
“Our strategy? Young players, but they have to be accompanied by experienced ones as well, perhaps it would be better to have a few more of those.”
