Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic has offered no guarantees over his future with the European champions, stating that he intends to “play more” next season.
Kovacic, 24, made 36 appearances for Madrid in 2017-18, but started just 10 of his 21 La Liga games.
While his agent dismissed exit rumours ahead of the summer transfer window, Kovacic has joined the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in suggesting that his future could lie away from the Santiago Bernabeu.
“I believe I’ll play more, whether in Real or somewhere else,” he told reporters on Friday. “Now is the time for me to play. Offers? I am under contract with Real and I wish not to comment on other clubs.”
