The 23-year-choice old’s to reject Real Madrid was handled diplomatically by the master of Real Madrid’s midfield.
It is unnecessary to “crucify” Kylian Mbappe for choosing to reject Real Madrid and remain with Paris Saint-Germain, according to Luka Modric.
Mbappe seemed set to join the European and Spanish champions on a free transfer from PSG, but he chose to sign a new deal that binds him to the French team until 2025.
Real Madrid’s master of the midfield, Modric, maintained his composure in the face of the 23-year-choice old’s to shun Madrid and believes the team can succeed without him.
“Mbappe made his decision as he saw fit; that is his right, and he is now living with it. He told the Croatian sports publication Sportske, “It continues on.
“We all expected him to visit us, but that didn’t happen, so what do we do now? We won’t be crucifying the man, I suppose.
“Mbappe is a fantastic player, but as I always say, no individual is more essential than the club in any situation. Real is the best, surpassing every player, and it always will be. Who can predict what will happen in football tomorrow, much less in three or four years? Time will only tell.
Madrid wants to capitalize on its achievements in the Champions League and La Liga last year.
The Santiago Bernabeu club won two titles under Carlo Ancelotti’s leadership, and Modric cited the manager’s “calmness and steadiness” as key components of their 2021–22 campaign.
“A new coach has shown up. Many players from his earlier period were still at Madrid when Carlo Ancelotti arrived. After the successful years with Zinedine Zidane, this made it simpler to adjust to the new direction.
