The agent of Mateo Kovacic has insisted that his client will not be leaving Real Madrid amid interest from Tottenham Hotspur. Kovacic has struggled to establish himself within the first team at Madrid, which has fueled speculation that he is considering leaving the club during the summer.
The 23 year old has featured just five times in Madrid’s last 14 games. Nikky Vuksan, who serves as Kovacic’s, agent appeared to dismiss the possibility of the Croatian international from leaving the Santiago Bernabeu.
“There is not any news. Or rather, there are no chances that this will be possible, Mateo has a very long contract with Real Madrid, which runs until 2021. So I do not understand all these rumours, all this speculation about his future” Talksport.
It now appears that Kovacic is determined to fight for a place in the Madrid first team. It will certainly be a tough task and he will have to work hard.
