Reported Manchester United target Mateo Kovacic has hinted that he would be open to a move away from Real Madrid this summer.

The Sun is reporting that the Croatia international has been touted as a target for Manchester United in the past and that he could seek to make a move away from Real Madrid this summer.

Kovacic made a total of 36 appearances for Real Madrid last season but he only started 10 La Liga games for the Spanish outfit.

His lack of playing time has inevitably prompted speculation that he could be on his way out of the Bernabeu this summer.

Now, the player himself has admitted that he is keen to secure some more regular playing time – whether that be at Real Madrid or another club.

Kovacic is quoted as saying in the same report: “I believe I’ll play more, whether in Real or somewhere else, now is the time for me to play.

“Offers? I am under contract with Real and I wish not to comment on other clubs.”

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they bid to build a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season.

The Red Devils finished second in the table but without a trophy after they lost the FA Cup final to Chelsea FC at Wembley last month.
