Ever since Luka Modric made the £ 34 million move from Tottenham to Real Madrid, there have been rumours linking him with a return to the Premier league. He did not settle at the Spanish club in his first season, but he has now become one of the important players midfield especially after the departure of Mesut Ozil. He was voted by the fans as the worst signing last season, but he has now transformed himself and has endeared to the public.

He has not scored a goal for the club this season, but he has already made 10 appearances in all competitions. It has been a virtual ever present in the Madrid team under Carlo Ancelotti. He has been linked to the Premier league with the likes of Manchester United showing a lot of interest. The champions are keen to strengthen the midfield and were linked with numerous players in the summer including Modric. However, they were unable to get him, but they are expected to come in with a second offer in the summer.

Modric, though, has ruled out any possibility of returning now because he feels settled at Madrid. He was recently joined by his former Tottenham teammate Gareth Bale, who has become the world’s most expensive player at £ 86 million.

“I have no doubt that the best thing that ever happened to me in football is to play in Madrid. Where will I be in four years? Here. Besides being a great club, my family feels amazing in Madrid. In football it is difficult to plan, but if you ask me, I would like to retire in Madrid. With titles, of course,” said the midfielder, who failed to win the league title last season. This time around it is going to be difficult as well because they are five points behind Barcelona.
