The arrival of Spanish starlet Dani Ceballos at the Bernabeu over the summer is also thought to have pushed Kovacic further down Zidane's pecking order.

Liverpool are now the latest side reportedly readying an offer for the Croat, though links between the two parties should be taken with a pinch of salt for a couple of reasons.
