Modric Moving Away? Here’s What He Had To Say

Real Madrid ace Luka Modric has quashed speculations regarding his future by announcing he never really had any intention of leaving the Spanish giants. Modric was heavily linked with a move to Serie A side Internazionale this summer after an extremely fruitful World Cup campaign with Croatia, but a deal never came to fruition.

Modric won the Golden Ball award for his exploits with Croatia at the World Cup, leading them to the final, and was also named UEFA’s Player of the Year on Thursday, after which he spoke to reporters in Monaco and clarified that he is very happy at his current club.

'I am in the best club of the world,' Modric claimed, before adding, “I want to be here. I am not happy, I am super happy being here, very quiet and I just like to keep working doing well things like last six years. As I already said, I am really happy to be here.

'I have been working to achieve as high as possible, so thanks to god I am here. This is the best year of my career collectively and individually, so I am really enjoying, we have to keep working,” he went on to add.

Modric joined Real Madrid from Tottenham for £32 million in 2012, and has established himself as one of the best midfielders in world football. He has scored 13 goals and provided 39 assists for Los Blancos in 260 appearances; numbers which caught the eye of Inter who wanted to rope him in in the summer.

Inter reportedly made a €15m offer which was rebuffed by Florentino Perez, who then went on to slap a ludicrous £668m price tag on the 32-year-old to ward off all suitors. Modric’s latest comments though ensure Perez can breathe easy, as it certainly looks the Croatian will be at Madrid for the foreseeable future.
