Real Madrid star says he would like to move out of Spnaish capital this summer.
The magical 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.
The Croatian women admitted the Frenchman’s exit came as a surprise, but he praised the 45-year-old.
“His resignation surprised us, we didn’t see it coming, but it was his choice,” he said.
“He went as a gentleman as a player, now again as a coach. Maybe someone in the locker room knew about it but I didn’t. It was a shock.
“Now we wish him all the luck and now let’s see if he can achieve this with someone else.”
