Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic happy at Real Madrid, says Julen Lopetegui

Modric has pact similar to Ronaldo that allows him to leave
Real Madrid

Modric has been strongly linked with Inter, while Kovacic is said to have attracted interest from Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, but Lopetegui seems confident he will be able to call upon their services for the 2018-19 season.

The Croatian will receive the playing time he desperately craves, Chelsea will be reinforced in midfield with a fantastic footballer and Madrid will still be in control of a player who they have great faith in.

New Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui had been hoping to keep the player, with the former Spain boss looking to build a new-looked Madrid side, but that no longer appears to be the case.

He also won the best player award (Golden Ball winner) of the competition.

Sunita Williams to fly on NASA’s commercial spacecraft in 2019
SpaceX did not give a reason for the delay of its first crewed test flight. "But you know, it looks like it might". They were two of the four astronauts selected by NASA in July 2015 to be trained to fly commercial crew missions.

Real have already lost one key player to an Italian heavyweight - Cristiano Ronaldo going to Juventus for £88.8million last month - and don't want to lose another.

He looks set to quit Real, who value the 24-year-old at around £60m.

"I think the president said it, I don't think there's much more to add", the manager told a news conference, according to FourFourTwo. He'll be happy with the proposal he receives here.

Marca reported that Kovacic is "in rebellion" and will not return to training until his wish to leave the Bernabeu in search of more regular first-team football is granted. "We've enjoyed having him and we'll continue to do so". If I have spoken with Modric, I speak with my players when I decide to, but it's private.
