LaLiga: You’re no longer needed – Modric told to leave Real Madrid, replacement named
Legendary midfielder Luka Modric has been informed by former Real Madrid player Guti Hernandez that his services are no longer required at the Santiago Bernabeu.
He advised the Croatian international to work toward leaving the Spanish powerhouses because young stars like Borussia Dortmund's Jude Bellingham are being lined up to take his place.
At the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, the 37-year-old midfielder guided Croatia to the semifinals.
Modric spent more than ten years at the Bernabeu and assisted the team in winning 21 trophies. He joined the La Liga team after leaving Tottenham Hotspur.
Despite his advanced age, the Croatian has started 22 games for Carlo Ancelotti's team this season, in all competitions.
The La Liga champions have identified Bellingham and Enzo Fernandez as potential replacements for the Croatian, a world-class midfielder with an excellent eye for a pass, whose contract is set to expire in June of this year.
Speaking on El Chiringuito TV, Guti said, "Renewals at Real Madrid?" I think Karim [Benzema] will stay. I have my own doubts about Luka Modric.
“He won’t have his space next season. Real Madrid doesn’t need him. I don’t know if Bellingham or another midfielder will come, but he has to leave at some point.
