Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has refused to rule out a possible exit in the January transfer window if he continues to struggle for minutes.
Modric has only managed to play 388 minutes out of 990 this season, and has just started four games in all competitions. So, if the situation with the Croatian does not change, a exit in the upcoming window cannot be ruled out.
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti was asked about Modric’s limited role in the team this season. Nevertheless, the Italian emphasised how important Modric is and ruled out the idea of a possible departure in January.
Luka Modric not ruling out a January departure?
After Croatia’s 1-0 defeat to Turkey in the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers, the veteran did speak about his future with Los Blancos.
When Modric was asked about his future, he said: “Well, I wouldn’t want to speculate at this point. There’s still plenty of time until winter and the end of the year.
“As I’ve mentioned many times, at my age, you can’t plan too far ahead. You have to take it one day at a time, from game to game, and see what the future holds.”
Modric not happy with his situation at Madrid?
The Croatian also admitted that he is not used to the situation that he finds himself in at Real Madrid this season. After all, he has been regular in the starting XI for almost a decade.
Furthermore, new signing Jude Bellingham has been in the spotlight since the start of the season. The former Borussia Dortmund player has outshone Modric to cement his place in the XI.
Will Luka Modric join Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami in January?
In recent weeks Luka Modric has been linked with a move to Inter Miami after falling out of favor this season. Moreover, a move to USA will definitely induce the 38-year-old.
Co-owner David Beckham is also interested in bringing the Ballon d’Or winner to the club. Furthermore, the idea to play alongside Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba will tempt him.
