The Italian daily says that recent reports suggesting Luka Modric could join Serie A club Inter Milan are more than just rumours; indeed, the player himself is agitating for a switch to the San Siro, the publication alleges.
Inter now have three of Modric's global teammates on the payroll at the San Siro.
"The only way Modric can leave is if someone pays 750m", Perez told Marca.
Real are unsurprisingly not considering letting him go following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo - but Modric may force their hand.
Shortly after winning his fourth Champions League trophy with Real Madrid, Modric was a key player in Croatia's run to the World Cup final.
Bayern Munich ace Vidal was expected to arrive, however, the opportunity to sign Modric has thrown that deal into doubt.
In doing so, Inter can offset the deal over two financial years.
For a deal to work with Inter, Real would likely have to agree to a loan move with the assurance of a permanent transfer next summer.
The sources within the club have been assured that Modric won't be departing the club and, contrary to the papers reporting that Modric is interested in a move to Italy, is quite happy in the Spanish capital and is aiming to return to first team football for the European Super Cup against Atletico Madrid.
And with Modric's stock higher than ever, Inter would have to dig very deep to prise the former Tottenham and Dinamo Zagreb man away from Spain, potentially putting such a strain on the club's coffers that they would be in danger of breaching Uefa's "financial fair play" rules.
