LIONEL MESSI has been labelled as the “best player in history” by Luka Modric.
It comes after Messi produced a stunning performance in Argentina’s 3-0 win over Croatia to book a spot in the World Cup final.
Speaking to Argentine journalists after the game, Modric praised his adversary and backed him to win the World Cup.
He said: “I hope he will win this World Cup, he is the best player in history and he deserves it.
“He is playing a great World Cup, he shows quality and greatness in every game.”
Modric’s words will come as a blow to Cristiano Ronaldo’s claims to the “GOAT” title.
Inter Miami CF, co-owned by football icon David Beckham, appears to be making ambitious moves in the transfer market. The latest rumor suggests they may pursue Real Madrid’s midfield maestro, Luka Modric, further to bolster their squad alongside the legendary Lionel Messi.
Reports from the Croatia-based newspaper, the Dubrovnik Times, have ignited speculation that Inter Miami is eyeing a move for Luka Modric. While the Croatian midfielder recently inked a contract extension with Real Madrid until the following summer, his limited playing time this season, with just one start in La Liga, has fueled rumors of a potential January departure. Modric’s situation may prompt Real Madrid’s manager, Carlo Ancelotti, to consider offers from the MLS side.
This prospective acquisition would see Modric join the ranks of former Barcelona stars Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, who have already made their mark in Inter Miami’s squad. The allure of pairing Modric’s creative brilliance with Messi’s legendary skillset is undoubtedly exciting for fans and the club.
