Luka Modric has been one of the most influential players to have played for the Spanish side Real Madrid. He has been mercurial in the midfield for the 11 time European Champions and is considered to be an inseparable part of the Spanish La Liga leaders. Along with Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos, the Croatian schemer makes up the “Fabulous Four” line-up for Real Madrid in the midfield and is considered to be one of the best players in the world.
Luka Modric has been targeted by some of the biggest clubs in world football over the past few years but no one has been able to get him out of Santiago Bernabeu so far. However, there has been renewed interest in the inclusion of the Croatian midfielder in their squad from Bayern Munich this time, with the Bavarians agreeing to pay £27 million for securing his services.
Bayern Munich are most likely going to shake things up this summer in their line-up and are looking to include some experienced players who can play alongside the likes of Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery in the midfield. Luka Modric, who has made more than 200 appearances for Real Madrid so far, fits the bill perfectly for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
The 31-year old midfielder has been instrumental in Real Madrid’s fabulous performance in Spain as well as Europe over the years. With pinpoint passing and equally impressive dribbling skills, the Croatian star is one to watch out for in the midfield. He has knack of keeping possession of the ball for a long time, and looks contribute as a defensive screen at times. His exceptional ability to take free kicks from set pieces and aim long range scorchers from open play make him an equally dangerous player like Ronaldo and Bale.
Bayern Munich as a team always look to depend on experienced players to get them the coveted silverwares. The 25 times German Champions are currently being managed by the legendary Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti, who was the manager of the Spanish side a few years ago and tends to have a very good relationship with Luka Modric.
Although the Croatian’s contract with the Galacticos expires in 2020, the Bavarians are taking much interest in making Modric a part of their team in the forthcoming season. Reportedly, Real Madrid are also open to talks for the departure of Modric, a player who has won eight major titles with them since his arrival from White Hart Lane in 2012.
