Luka modric It has been the first international Real Madrid in returning from the break. The Croatian was already seen by Valdebebas this Monday, although he trained inside the facilities. The reason has nothing to do with an injury or something like that. It was a decision of his own after agreeing with his team that the friendly would not play before Georgia, once Croatia I had already secured the classification to the UEFA EURO 2020.
This has been a gesture that he liked within the club and the technical staff of Madrid. There was some concern with Modric, who has already returned injured from the last two stops. From the capital you want to take maximum care of your physique and your long trips with your selection were taking its toll. But Modric, who is in full swing for being the Croatian with more internationalities, has realized and heard the advice of the club.
Luka, who has lived a very special week in which he received the Golden foot and presented his autobiography, he is already in Madrid with a clear objective: to fight for ownership. He is aware that he has lost prominence, motivated by the emergence of Fede Valverde in the eleven and the dosage that he has to perform according to his physique, which is no longer the one with which he landed in Madrid seven years ago. Zidane takes care of him so that he arrives in full form at the most important moments of the season.
Modric wants to remain relevant in Madrid and is capable of it. His gesture of returning before the break is a statement of intentions of the last Golden Ball, which is not going to get carried away and settle for being one of those who occupy a position on the bench on a recurring basis. He still has a lot to give, something that was already seen after the return of his injury, setting an outstanding performance in the 0-4 at Eibar in Ipurua.
Zidane wants Modric on his team, although rumors have been pointing out for weeks that this could be his last white season. It is the story that has been repeated in the last two summers. In 2018 he had a succulent offer on the table Inter who rejected Madrid. A few months ago it was Modric himself who dismissed his departure since he did not want to leave with the bad taste in his mouth that he left last year. With the appearance of Valverde there is already talk of a witness change, but the '10' of Madrid wants to endure, at least, until 2021.
Modric ends his contract at the end of next season. The conquest of the Golden Ball automatically renewed his link with the merengue entity for one more season and is willing to finish it. He believes that he can still endure this year and he who comes to a good level, although it is clear that his loss of prominence will continue to be progressive. It will be then when his future is raised and, who knows, if a possible withdrawal.
Odegaard, the natural successor
In Madrid he has the full confidence of Zidane and the club. That he has returned from the break before his time has re-established the order between the player and the directive, which could already have a road map marked with Modric and his relay. The next season will be in which, probably, he will put an end to his white stage and give way to a player who is scheduled to join as of July 2021: Odegaard. The Norwegian is increasingly seen as the substitute for Modric and if the Croatian fulfills his contract he will allow young Martin to complete his two years of assignment in the Real society.
