Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic talks about future


Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic offered no guarantees over his future with the European champions but said he would be playing more next season.

Kovacic, who arrived at Madrid in 2015 after two and a half seasons with Serie A giants Inter,  has made 36 appearances for Madrid in 2017-18, starting just 10 of his 21 LaLiga games.

The Croatia international has been linked with moves to the likes of Manchester United, Juventus and Tottenham. While his agent dismissed exit rumors, Kovacic said he needed more game time next season.

Playing time

“I believe I’ll play more, whether in Real or somewhere else. Now is the time for me to play. Offers? I am under contract with Real and I wish not to comment on other clubs,” Kovacic said.

The 26-years-old has won three Champions League titles and a LaLiga crown at Madrid, who are searching for a new head coach after Zinedine Zidane’s shock departure.
