Luka Modric Wants Mbappe To leave PSG

Real Madrid prolific midfielder, Luka Modric want to see the Paris Saint-Germain striker leave his present club to attain the level of dominance his potential suggests.

Kylian Mbappé having won the world cup has constantly been linked with a transfer Spain’s capital with his countryman Zinedine Zidane, who is the present coach of the Los Blancos side.

However, PSG’s sporting director Leonardo Araújo is willing to refuse any offer, as he plans to secure the 21-year-old’s future in Paris.

Modric believes Mbappe has the ability to reach the top of the game as an individual, but feels he can only get there if he leaves his present club to join the best league in Europe.

“Mbappé has everything to dominate the scene,” Modric told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“But I think that to make the leap in quality he needs to go to a championship in which his team does not win so easily.”

Modric – the 2018 Ballon d’Or winner – turns 35 in September but has played 35 matches for Real this season, scoring five goals and creating five assists.

When asked about this future, the Croatian international was adamant he had a couple of seasons left at a high level and hinted he would like to coach with his national team one day.

“I’m sure I can play at a high level for two more years, then we’ll see,” Modric said.

“I would like to end my career at Real, but it will also depend on the club.

“Of course, I’ll do the coaching course. For us, the national team is a feeling above football, both as a player and as a coach I’d be honored to be there”.
