Luka Modric asks Gareth Bale to stay


The Croatian, in statements collected by British media, praises the Welshman, who, as AS said, wants to leave in the summer: “He is an incredible player.” Bale’s future has long since become a recurring theme around Real Madrid. In recent weeks it is more topical than ever because of the news of AS on October 8, which revealed that the Welshman, upset with Zidane and the club, wants to leave. Now Modric , in statements collected by British media such as The Sun or Mirror , has asked him to continue: “Of course, I hope he stays this and the next seasons.”

The Croatian has been appreciative of his partner in Tottenham, with whom he also shares costumes in Madrid since 2013: “He is an incredible player and very important for the team. He is demonstrating this season. Hopefully he stays this and the next seasons. ”  Modric thus referred to the promising start of Cardiff, who has scored two goals and given two assists in seven games  after a summer in which it seemed more outside than inside the Bernabéu.

The current Golden Ball also spoke optimistically about the direction of Madrid in the Champions League, where he has added only one point in two days: “We are still at the beginning of the tournament, we have several more games ahead. We are good enough to overcome this bad start and qualify for eighths. “

Touched with your selections

Modric and Bale saw each other’s faces this week, in the midst of selections, on the occasion of Wales-Croatia (1-1) on Sunday. After the meeting, the Croatian explained that “I did not see Gareth after the game because I was also physically challenged. We will see if I am well. I hope he is well too.”

That is the same desire of Zidane , who already showed his concern about what could happen during the FIFA stop. “I would like to have all the players ready and healthy, but they never stop. We will stay here, but many will leave with the national team. It is what there is …”, he said after Granada . This Tuesday, both Modric and Bale will be tested for the extent of their pain. The hope is that it is not much because decisive weeks come with the meetings against  Mallorca (October 19), Galatasaray (22) and Barcelona (26).
