Luka Modric laughs at suggestions that he will leave Real Madrid in the lurch as Kylian Mbappe did when he went back on his verbal agreement to make the Bernabeu move.

  • Luka Modric has dismissed the suggestion that he will not continue at Real Madrid
  • He was asked if he could change his mind like Kylian Mbappe did about his move.
  • The Croatian’s contract expires on June 30 but the madridistas should not panic
  • Next Saturday he will play against Liverpool in the Champions League final.

In the wake of Kylian Mbappe’s shocking last-minute switch to snub Real Madrid and stay in Paris, Luka Modric has assured fans that he won’t do the same.

Modric, 36, will become a free agent this summer after a decade in the Spanish capital but has insisted he will stay at the Bernabeu, ruling out any chance of an Mbappe-style U-turn.

Mbappe shocked the Spanish giants on Saturday by agreeing a new three-year deal at PSG worth more than £650,000 a week, despite initially pushing to join Madrid earlier this year.
