Real Madrid is on the verge of an internal breakdown with lots of stars wants to move away from Madrid due to lack of playing time. Real Madrid Mateo Kovacic is trying to make his way out of the Santiago Bernabeu before the transfer window closes.
The La Liga transfer window closes on 31 August and Kovacic wants to move away from Madrid before the transfer window shuts down. The Croatian international does not travel with the team on their pre-season tour despite being in the Spanish capital all along.
According to reports from Marca, Kovacic does not report for the training on Monday to force his way out from the Bernabeu. Kovacic is grown frustrated with his lack of opportunity to play with the team in the La Liga as the starter.
Kovacic has made clear that he wants to leave Los Blancos and even meet with the new manager to discuss his exit but Real Madrid has made clear that player is not available for sale to the frustration of the player.
Mateo is gone on strike to force his way out after Manager Julen Lopetegui claims that the player is not for sale according to the Madrid based news-outlet. Kovacic wants to leave Madrid after 3 unsuccessful years after signing for them in 2015 from Inter Milan.
Kovacic is hopeful that some team would come to his rescue before the end of the month when the transfer window closes this summer. Kovacic is linked with the return to his former club Dinamo Zagreb from where he started his playing career. The transfer would be like the fairy tale for both the team and the player returning.
The tension between the player and the team is increasing with the fact that Kovacic is willing to do anything to carve his way out of the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.
Mateo Kovacic is a young and talented player and in need of proper playing time to show his potential and improve to become better and better. Real Madrid is unable to provide him with the proper playing time to bloom so it will be best for both the team and the player to part their way.
Madrid decision to hold on the player may backfire as the player is unwilling to play and they will not be able to get the best out of him in his this state of mind.
