Real Madrid Star Rules Out Switch To Man Utd
Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has insisted that he has no interest in a move to Manchester United – nor to any side in the Premier League.
The Croatian midfielder is certain that his home for the rest of his career will be the Bernabeu, and despite being linked with United this summer, sees no chance that he will end up at Old Trafford.
Speaking to Croatian newspaper Sportske Novosti, Modric said “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.”
The midfield maestro struggled in his early time at Madird, but has since come into his own under new manager Carlo Ancelotti. Although he has been unable to score his debut goal as of yet, he has found a consistent starting place under Ancelotti and is starting to finally demonstrate just why Real coughed up a whopping £33 million for him.
It is rumoured that David Moyes attempted to sign Luka Modric last summer, and Modric’s insistence that he will remain at Madrid comes as something of a blow to a manager that is in need of fresh blood at United.
Moyes recent squad problems have only become compounded by the fact that new marquee signing Maruoane Fellaini has been ruled out for seven weeks with a wrist injury.
