Luka Modric, the midfield maestro for Real Madrid, has undoubtedly etched his name in football history as one of the finest midfielders the world has ever seen.

Over more than a decade, Modric has been the driving force behind Real Madrid’s successes.

Although he may now be gradually stepping out of the spotlight, his recent performance and insights into the club’s new signings demonstrate his enduring influence on the team.

Luka Modric’s importance to Real Madrid cannot be overstated. His ability to control the midfield, dictate the tempo of the game, and deliver precise passes has been instrumental in the club’s numerous triumphs.

Even as he takes a step back in terms of prominence, Modric remains an integral part of the Real Madrid setup.

In a recent match against Getafe, Luka Modric showcased that he still possesses the magic that has defined his career.

His partnership with fellow midfield maestro Toni Kroos was instrumental in Real Madrid’s second-half comeback. This display served as a reminder of Modric’s enduring brilliance.

In a recent interview with Sportske Novosti, Luka Modric shared his thoughts on Real Madrid’s summer signings, providing valuable insights into their potential and impact on the team.

Modric began with high praise for the summer signing, Jude Bellingham. The English prodigy has made an immediate impact, scoring five goals in just four appearances for Los Blancos.

Modric acknowledged Bellingham’s talent, saying: “I have to say Jude has pleasantly surprised me. It was known he was talented, but when you see him up close, you only realize his potential.”

Despite enduring a challenging start to his time in Spain due to a meniscal rupture, Turkish sensation Arda Guler received accolades from Modric.

The Croatian legend noted: “Arda Güler is a special talent, you could see it in the training sessions before the injury. His football will be spectacular. He has some skills with the ball that are special.”

Modric also praised the team’s new goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, for his stellar performances in goal. He stated: “It’s clear to everyone he is a top goalkeeper.”
