This summer, Luka Modric made the decision to sign for Real Madrid despite offers of huge financial stature in fashionable football, including in Saudi Arabia. The Croat had two reasons for making such a decision: the first was to think about the last presence with the team in the Eurocup, which he wants to achieve in full, the second is a conversation with Ancelotti, where he was promised that he would continue to compete. a weighty guy and stardom in the field, something that did not come true.
Since the pre-season, the Ballon d’Or winner’s feelings have been nowhere near the best. The 10 didn’t spend many minutes on the pitch and it was thought this was the result of the coach’s need to meet new reinforcements, but the reality was confirmed at the start of La Liga: two substitutions in two games, very few substitution minutes and a situation that not only will not improve , but can become even more difficult for “10”.
Ancelotti is firm in his intentions and does not seem to be changing. The midfield that the Italian wants is in place and there are few opportunities for the Croatian to play in the starting XI. Even the coach assures that today it is more expedient for Luka to reduce the time on the field, rather than increase it. Therefore, one could talk about the end of the era of the merengue team, which has already become a legend.
