An attempt by Spanish giants, Real Madrid to nail Inter Milan and have them sanctioned over what they described as an illegal approach of midfielder Luka Modric has failed.
World football governing body, FIFA have claimed that the Italian side will face no sanction for reportedly contacting the player’s agent in August.
Having joined Madrid from Tottenham in 2012, the Spanish side is not ready to part ways with the prospective world footballer of the year.
Modric’s performance at the World Cup was eye catching making him win the player of the tournament following their 4-2 defeat to France in the finals.
Having recently added the UEFA player of the year award to his feats, he has been shortlisted for the final race of who to be the World best player alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah.
Madrid had petitioned FIFA but with the evidence available before FIFA, the case against Milan has been dismissed.
FIFA transfer rules allow a player to be contacted by a club if he is in his final six months of his contract which applies to Modric whose four-year deal with Madrid is almost running out.
The football body therefore ruled that no disciplinary case will be hammered on Milan and has communicated its decision to both clubs.
