Luka Modric is back to talk once again about the hottest issue in the summer market, that of Kylian Mappe. The Frenchman was linked with a move to Madrid, but in the end he opted to continue with Paris Saint-Germain and rejected his desire to play for the European champions.
The Croatian in his interview for the Spanish newspaper “Marca” stated that Mbappe made a decision and this is his right. “We all thought it would come to us, it didn’t happen and now what?
He should not be crucified for his decision. Kylian is a great player, but as I always repeat, no footballer is more important than the club. Real Madrid is above all players and always will be.”
The 36-year-old has also emphasized that the 23-year-old star could be transferred to Spain in the future as it is the player’s own wish and his transfer in this market to “Santiago Bernabeu” may not have been the right moment.
The midfielder, despite his age, will continue for another year with Real Madrid, as the club’s leaders renewed his contract immediately after winning the Champions League final with Liverpool. In his last season in La Liga he played 28 games scoring two goals and serving 8 assists for his teammates.
