Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has hinted that one day he would love to play in Serie A amid repeated links with a move to AC Milan.
Elliott Management are keen on adding more experience to the squad in January as we recently revealed, and after plenty of links in the summer it has been claimed that Milan’s pursuit of Modric is far from over.
Calciomercato.com recently suggested that the Croatia international has made the Rossoneri his first choice destination for when he leaves Real Madrid, and is even willing to take a wage cut to join his boyhood club.
Modric spoke to reporters after receiving a prestigious award at the Golden Foot awards for 2019 in Montecarlo, and dropped arguably his biggest hint yet that a move to Serie A could be on the horizon – eventually.
“It’s an honor to receive this big prize, happy to be here and to enjoy this evening,” he said (via Di Marzio).
“We’ll see who wins the next Ballon d’Or, I don’t know who it will be, there are a few candidates but we’ll only find out in December who won it.
“I like Italy, I follow Serie A because many of my teammates from national team are there. Italians are fantastic. Italy is close to Croatia and people have similar mentalities.
I like Italy, we’ll see if someday I play in Italy, I can’t talk about this because I’m a Real Madrid player. I’m enjoying my time there and at time being I see my future in Madrid.”
