Real on the lookout for a new Modrić

Since his arrival in 2012, Luka Modrić has so far made 246 appearances and scored 13 goals in all competitions for Real Madrid. He has been of huge importance in their midfield throughout the six seasons he has spent in the Spanish capital. Boasting superb creativity, extreme football intelligence and fighting spirit, he has helped Los Blancos win three Champions League trophies, three UEFA Super Cups, three FIFA Club World Cups, two Spanish Super Cups, one La Liga and one Copa del Rey trophy.

However, the Croatian midfielder turns 33 this year and cannot be expected to continue his top-class contribution with no end.

Therefore, the club have begun searching for an adequate long-term replacement, according to Marca. They do not believe that they have a player that would come close enough to the former Tottenham Hotspur man to directly replace him in the team and fulfil his tasks with the same level of quality. They are ready to turn to the transfer market in order to obtain such a player.
