Luka Modric has been one of the best soccer players in the world for years.
The now legendary Croatian midfielder will soon celebrate his 37th birthday, but despite this he is still the main man in the Royals’ midfield.
However, in the new season, Luka will not be on the field as often as in previous seasons. Real has prepared a special plan for him according to which he will be spared unnecessary efforts.
Modric will be handled very carefully. He will not play in games that are not too important, there are worthy substitutes on the field, and he will also leave the game early in case certain games are decided by results.
Madrid decided on this move because of Luka’s age, but also because he played 103 games in the previous two seasons.
Real do not want Modric to suffer a serious injury in the last season of the club. They want him to say goodbye fully healthy and be at his best when he’s needed most in his year with the club.
The Croatian midfielder arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2012. He came from Tottenham and in Real became one of the best footballers in the world.
He won absolutely everything with the kings. Among the trophies is the Golden Ball, and he played 436 matches and scored 31 goals.
