How could Real Madrid line up next season after the transfer window?
Inter, who are willing to pay whatever it takes to land Modric, want to sign the player for €15m on a loan and then €20m next summer to make it permanent.
Luka Modric, the Golden Ball victor at the World Cup, is the only player yet to return to training after the World Cup.
Club president Florentino Perez insists that any bidding suitors must meet Modric's astonishing £669million release clause with the European champions.
"Yes I talked to Modric after the great World Cup that he had", Lopetegui said.

However, Corriere dello Sport claims that Suning has offered to sponsor the deal by paying a percentage of Modric's wages which would allow Inter to complete the move without breaking any rules.
Luka Modric has had an extraordinary summer.
"I told him he was a player I'm passionate about, I love him and he knows it".
