Real Madrid have reported Inter Milan to Fifa over an alleged illegal approach for midfielder Luka Modric.
The 32-year-old Croat, who captained his country to the World Cup final and was named player of the tournament, has been linked with a move to Serie A.
Real president Florentino Perez said earlier this month the only way Modric would leave was if his 750 million euro (£671m) release clause was met.
The Spanish giants sold Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus for £99.2m.
The transfer window in Italy closes on Friday at 19:00 BST.
Modric joined Real from Tottenham in 2012 and has won La Liga once and the Champions League four times.
Inter are back in the Champions League for the first time since 2011-12.
Meanwhile, Modric is likely to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu for one more season.
His agent had a new meeting with Florentino Perez yesterday but the president of the Merengues is not open to sell Modric after seeing both Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo leave.
The 33-year-old posted a picture on Instagram yesterday night and the message shared on social media could be the final proof that the player won’t be leaving the club this summer.
“It was a hard defeat but defeats do not belong to this team”, Modric wrote after Real’s European Supercup blow against Atletico Madrid.
“We’ll have to work hard like we’ve always done. #HalaMadrid.”
