Antonio Conte is reportedly keen to add one of the world’s best midfielders to his ranks.
The midfield duo N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic have been influential in our success this term, and Cesc Fabregas has also enjoyed a stellar season, despite playing a bit-part role. However, it doesn’t appear as though Conte is completely content with his options in the middle of the park.
According to Spanish outlet Diariogol, Chelsea are interested in signing Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric.
The Croatian has established himself as one of the best players in his position anywhere in the world in recent years, but Diariogol believe that Los Blancos president Florentino Perez may entertain offers this summer as he looks to rejuvenate his midfield.
However, Chelsea are not alone in the race to secure his signature. Diariogol report that the Premier League champions will face competition from PSG, Arsenal and Bayern Munich. It comes as no surprise that some of Europe’s biggest names are interested in signing one of Europe’s best players.
