Inter Milan Sporting Director Piero Ausilio has spoken to Sky Sports once again about the failed attempt to lure Luka Modric to Italy over the summer. Ausilio admitted that “people didn’t think it would be possible to sign Modric but there’s no harm in dreaming. It was a proposal we put on the table which was discussed at the time. It’s true that we were told that [Modric’s representatives] had to inform Madrid about the offer and that they’d let us know”.
Despite the complexities of the operation, Piero Ausilio says he hasn’t been deterred and is willing to have another attempt at signing Modric next year: “To be honest, we’re not quite ready to open negotiations because we know our limits. Luka is such a great player with a lot of quality. Will we try to sign him again? In football, you can never say never”.
