La Repubblica - The Croatian clan is no more, Luka Modric is now further away
Inter are losing its Croatian pieces: Sime Vrsaljko seems likely to return to Atletico Madrid, Ivan Perisic has asked to be sold and so the arrival of Luka Modric seems so much further away now.
“Once upon a time, the Croatian clan at Inter, together with Luka Modric, was lighting up Russia at the World Cup, ended with a historic final. That equation seemed easy: a team, with three starters in such a strong national team, will do very well. It did not happen that way. The last defeat in Turin increases uncertainty, fueling already an intense climate in which Conte continues to be mention as replacement of Spalletti on the bench for 2019-2020 season. For certain, starting next season, the Croatian colony of Pinetina will be a memory.”
