Former club determined to reunite with Real Madrid ace Luka Modric despite Saudi pro league interest

Luka Modric

Luka Modric is a player who is loved by players all around the globe. The midfielder is not only an exceptional player but also a remarkable captain. Real Madrid has not had a player like him before. The Croatian’s playstyle and command on the field have earned him the respect of not only his peers but his opponents as well.

After playing for Los Blancos for over a decade, Luca Modric’s career is nearing its dawn. The Ballon d’Or winner will probably leave Santiago Bernabeu next season. There is a chance that he, like many others, may join the Saudi Pro League to earn some extra cash, but Dinamo Zagreb’s president might change that.

Dinamo Zagreb President vows to sign Modric after Madrid stint

The Ballon d’Or winner used to play for the Croatian club, Dinamo Zagreb before he made a move to Europe and impressed everyone. Club President Vlatka Peras is keen on bringing him back to where it all started.

“It would make sense for him to return to Dinamo at the end of his career, why not? Dinamo will certainly do everything in its power to make it happen. Now whether that will be enough, we will see,” he said in an interview.

Though Peras is ready to do everything in his power to bring the Croatian back to his former club, offers from the Middle East might lure him away. The Saudi Pro League’s clubs’ interest in Luca was clear in the 2023 transfer market. Some clubs not only offered him a position in the team but also promised to make him manager once his contract expired.

When did Luka Modric play for Dinamo Zagreb?

Luka Modric played for Dinamo Zagreb for five years before he made a move to Europe and joined the Premier League club, Tottenham Hotspur. He was a member of the club from 2003 to 2008. During this time, he made 130 appearances and scored 32 goals.

Luka Modric won two League titles with Dinamo Zagreb and was also presented with the Prva HNL Player of the Year award for his performance in the 2006-07 season. He was later assigned the captaincy of the squad, and the team managed to qualify for the UEFA Cup under him.

Vlatka Peras wants Luka Modric to play for him once again, but it will be hard to convince the payor to pick him over the contracts offered by the Saudi Pro League. Will he be able to, though? Let us know what you think in the comments.
