During the transfer window, veteran midfielder Luka Modric turned down a million-dollar offer to be another international star in Saudi Arabian football.
As a result, he preferred to renew for another season with Real Madrid, where he has played since 2012, a decision that further strengthened his already historic relationship with the Spanish team.
However, just a few months later, the player and club may no longer be so close. This is because, according to information from the Spanish press, the 38-year-old midfielder met with David Beckham in Croatia to discuss a possible transfer to Inter Miami, a team that belongs to the former English player and is Lionel’s new home.
Thus, the main reason for the possible change may be the loss of the status of absolute holder. With the signing and, mainly, the quick adaptation of Englishman Jude Bellingham to the Real Madrid team, Modric has spent more time on the bench than on the field.
At the beginning of September, Modrid admitted, in an interview with a Croatian newspaper, the possibility of leaving Real Madrid in the next transfer window, in January. With just six months left on his contract, he will be able to sign a pre-contract with another club at the turn of the year.
“Let’s see how things develop. If in the future I am no longer important, then I will think about what to do”, he said three weeks ago.
Since that declaration, Modric has started just two of Real Madrid’s five matches. This Saturday, he didn’t even leave the bench in the 3-0 victory over Girona, the same situation as in the previous round, the 2-0 over Las Palmas.
