Modric urges Bale to decide on his potential move

Luka Modric urges Gareth Bale to make decision about his future at Real Madrid

September 10, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
The Croatian midfielder and the Welsh ace have played together for over 12 years, but that run could come to an end if Bale leaves Los Blancos.

The tug of war that has gone on between Zidane and Gareth Bale over the player's future seems to have some of his teammates tired, and one of Bale's closest friends inside Los Blancos' locker room has urged him to make up his mind and not leave everything on the club's hands.

Speaking in an interview with The Times, Modric discussed a variety of topics related to his career and his stay with the Spanish club, and Bale's topic was a must in the discussion. 

Modric tried to be careful with this topic, especially due to the nature of his relationship with Bale, but his answer reveals that some of Los Blancos' footballers would like to see the end of that transfer saga, and according to Modric, only Bale has the key to untangle this problem.

"It's a tough situation for both himself and the club, but Gareth needs to figure out what he wants to do. He is a grown man and he must decide what's best for him: 'Is he happy here or would he like to try something else?' If you ask me, Gareth is still a great player and he has a lot to offer in the world of football," Modric said.

The Croatian midfielder admitted that being away from the pitch for as long as Bale has with the Spanish giants migh have damaged his confidence, but he hints during the interview that he still can shine at the Bernabeu or anywhere else.

"It's up to him to decide if he is still hungry to win titles here or if he wants to move forward. No matter what happens, if he stays here or if he leaves, he still can be a relevant player," Modric added.

The 2018 Ballon D'Or winner ended the interview by sharing his disappointment on the cancellation of the awards ceremony due to the coronavirus pandemic. Modric went even further by naming the player that should have won the award this year.

"Those who call the shots had their reasons to cancel the Ballon D'Or ceremony. It's a pity to watch players that had an amazing year missing out on the opportunity of winning the top individual trophy there is. I know how you feel when you win it and it's a drag to see players that deserved to win it miss out on that chance. If I had to name one player that should have won it, I'd say Robert Lewandowski," Modric concluded.
