Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has suddenly become livid at the club and made a demand from his superiors.
Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has had a more than successful career at the Santiago Bernabeu. His wage demands have been met by Florentino Perez, who weathered Inter Milan’s interest in the Croatia international and Luka Modric has also gone on to win a lot of trophies at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Last year was surely a memorable one for the Croatia international. He grabbed a silver medal at Russia 2018 and also managed to win the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid earlier on. Modric’s exploits did not go unnoticed and he bagged the Ballon d’Or, FIFA’s The Best Player Award and UEFA’s Best Player Award.
However, Luka Modric has recently gotten extremely livid with Real Madrid and has placed an ultimatum in front of the club, according to Diario GOL. The defending European champions are on the verge of completing a move for Eden Hazard, and partly because of Adidas, the Chelsea winger will ask for the number 10 before closing his contract.
Real Madrid have happily satisfied most of Eden Hazard’s requests, but satisfying this one could be problematic for them because a senior figure already wears the number 10 and it would be unfair to strip him off it. As a matter of fact, Luka Modric has already asked his representatives to knock into Real Madrid’s offices to talk about the same.
Luka Modric is a massive fan of the number 10 and it means the world to him. In case Los Merengues end up snapping it up from him in the worst of circumstances and things get ugly, the 33-year-old will simply request for a transfer to Inter Milan, who are still interested in him, and also take a pay cut.
If Luka Modric ends up keeping the number 10, which one should Eden Hazard get?
