In comments to ‘Sportske’, Luka Modric wanted to talk about Kylian Mbappe’s failed move to Real Madrid.
The Croatian international made it clear that no player bigger than ‘loc blancos’, although he left it open as to whether the French international would return to the Santiago Bernabeu at a later state.
Luka Modric gave an extensive review of Real Madrid’s successful season, in some comments to ‘Sportske’. The Croatian international didn’t dodge any questions and even dared to talk about the non-arrival of Kylian Mbappé at the Santiago Bernabéu.
After being questioned about the French player’s decision to renew with PSG, Modric said: “Mbappé decided what he decided, that’s his right and now he has to live with that decision. We all thought he would come to us, it didn’t happen… and now what? Well, we’re not going to crucify him. Mbappé is a great player, but, as I always say, no player is more important than the club. Real Madrid is the greatest, above all players and it will always be like that”.
He added about the Parisian striker: “It is possible that Mbappé will come in a few years. Following football logic, which was valid until the pressure of the socio-political environment and PSG’s interest, Mbappé would probably follow his old desire of playing for Real Madrid. While it may now seem, especially in disillusioned fans, that ties were broken, things can happen again”.
