ZURICH (AP) — Real Madrid has reported Inter Milan to FIFA over the Italian club’s pursuit of midfielder Luka Modric.

FIFA says it has received a complaint from Madrid ahead of the Serie A transfer window closing later Friday.

The 32-year-old Modric came on as a second-half substitute Wednesday in the UEFA Super Cup, which Madrid lost to Atletico Madrid 4-2 in extra time.

It was Modric’s first competitive game since the World Cup final, which Croatia lost to France in July.
