Since Luka Modric joined Real Madrid in 2012 from Tottenham Hotspur, his life changed and at Santiago Bernabeu, he only became better and better. In each match, he proved his worth as a central midfielder and fit extremely well the system of Zinedine Zidane and Carlo Ancelotti. His partnership with Toni Kroos is still considered legendary.
He gave an interview to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Here are excerpts:
The future in Real Madrid
I am sure I can play at a high level for two more years. I would like to finish my career at Real Madrid, but it will also depend on the club.
The biggest threat in the Champions League
I see PSG in a good way, even if they’re not going to play until August.
It’s easy to say Barcelona and Bayern [Munich].
You have to be careful with Atletico Madrid and, of course, among the favourites will be the one that progresses between Manchester City and Real Madrid.
On Cristiano Ronaldo
He is one of the greatest in history.
Cristiano always wants to win, he motivated us and made us react.
He has a great heart, he is always ready to help those in need.
Kylian Mbappe’s link to join Real Madrid
He has it all, but I think that in order to make that leap in quality he needs to go to a championship where his team doesn’t win so easily.
I also see great potential in Vinicius and I like [Kevin] De Bruyne and [Raheem] Sterling.
