Real Madrid sign Mateo Kovacic

Real Madrid have completed the signing of youngster Mateo Kovacic from Inter. The 21 year old Croat moves to the Bernabeu for a fee of 32 million euros.  The move will see him join fellow countryman Luka Modric, with both players having represented Dinamo Zagreb early in their careers.

Inter boss Roberto Mancini said that they didn't want to sell Kovacic, but were forced to in order to adhere to the new Financial Fairplay Rules.

The Nerazzurri are reportedly lining up Wolfsburg's Ivan Perisic as a replacement for Kovacic.
