5 players who can replace Luka Modric at Real Madrid

Luka Modric

 

Modric has been pivotal for Real Madrid over the years. He has been the backbone of the Real team, in the recent past. He has been the main part of the Zidane’s plan at Real Madrid. Player has shown again and again what a world class player he is. The former Tottenham player has been the mainstay of the team and is one the reasons Real Madrid is performing so well. However, the age of the player is a major concern. The Croatian midfielder is now little past 30. Albeit, he has 3-4 good seasons ahead of him, Real Madrid would be looking to find his replacement, so that they will be well equipped when the 31 year old calls it a day.

Here are 5 possible players who can replace the Los Blancos star:-

#1 Christian Eriksen:-

The 25 year old Tottenham midfielder has shown his world class abilities this season. His performances were not quite good enough in the preceding year, but ever since the turn of the year, he has been one of the stars of the Premier League. The Catalonians see him as a possible replacement for Iniesta, who is at the end of his career. Although, he hasn’t been linked to a move away from the Spurs, he could be a star playmaker for the Los Blancos. He has the technique, set piece skills and goal scoring talent that set him apart from his competitors. It would not be surprising if the arch-rivals, Real Madrid and Barcelona, fight over the signature of the youngster in the coming future.

#2 Cesc Fabregas:-

The former Barcelona midfielder, would be an optimal choice for Real Madrid, given his skills are similar to that of Modric. He has struggled this season to find a place in the Chelsea starting line-up. The midfielder would bring vision, creativity and solidity to the Real Madrid midfield. In the recent past, whenever he has got chance, he has created moments of magic on the pitch by his skilful play. If he does decide to join Real, it would definitely stir up quite a bit of controversies. He has not been linked to any move to Santiago Bernabeu, but would be nothing less than a miracle if Los Blancos can pull off this transfer.

#3 Julian Weigl:-

Weigl has been an important figure in the Dortmund midfield, for couple of seasons now. He is a defensive midfielder, but has shown his ability to play a much advanced role. He has been linked to a move to Santiago Bernabeu for quite some time now. The 21 year midfielder can be the perfect player for the Los Blancos, who have been on the lookout for a defensive midfielder. Isco and Casemiro have been quite inefficient in fulfilling the defensive duties. So, we might see Weigl move to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

#4 Mateo Kovacic:-

With the presence of world-class midfielders, Kovacic has not been a regular member of the Real Madrid squad. He has struggled to make it to the playing eleven. Despite, his irregularities in appearances, he has shown that he can play at multiple positions. He was signed as a long term replacement for Modric, but has failed to make any impact as yet. He has the potential to replace his fellow Croatian Modric. With more opportunities in the future, he might be able to fill the big shoes of Modric.

#5 Marco Verratti:-

Verratti has been excellent once again this season for PSG. Often compared to Pirlo, he is currently the best midfielder in Italy. He has been good in intercepting and creating chances and always keeps the ball moving in the midfield. His huge potential has linked him with a big money move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona. He has been pivotal for PSG over the years and has been an absolute star for them. We might see the transfer records being broken, when the two European giants fight it out for the PSG star, in the summer transfer window.
