Europe has been the breakthrough of several talented attackers since this season started, but barely any player has been as entertaining as Napoli’s Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

The Georgian winger has taken Serie A by storm this campaign, scoring six goals and assisting five. He also has five direct goal contributions in the Champions League, but it is his silky footwork and ability to take on players with ease that have caught the eye of fans.

Real Madrid fans, especially, should keep an eye out for Kvaratskhelia. Why? Well, according to an old interview that has resurfaced, the Georgian has admitted to being a Madrid fan.

“My biggest dream is to win the Champions League,” Kvaratskhelia said.

“With Real Madrid. Since I was a kid I’m a Real Madrid fan. With my brothers, we were always watching their games,” he added when inquired about which team he would like to win the UCL with.

Madrid are coming off a Champions League, as it happens, and have already qualified for the Round of 16 in the competition. The Spanish champions are also top of La Liga as it stands, and will be hoping to defend both their crowns this season.

Canadian international says playing against Luka Modric was a ‘lesson’ for him

Real Madrid are blessed to have the services and loyalty of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos. The duo have run the show in the Merengues’ midfield for close to a decade and continue to deliver flawless performances to date.

Of the two, however, it is the Croatian who deserves the higher credit. The veteran is now 37 years of age, yet dominates the middle of the park with grace and poise like none other.

Stephen Estuaqio, an FC Porto player and Canada International, spoke earlier this week about why he considered Luka Modric to be a special player and compared him with Kevin de Bruyne to support his stance.

“I played against De Bruyne, but I ran behind Modrić. I couldn’t play against him. It’s crazy how he dictates the game and controls everything. It was a lesson for me,” he said on The 90th minute on Youtube.

With his contract running out next season, Real Madrid are looking to renew his deal by one year come June. Yet, it is difficult to see him continue beyond next season and his imminent departure will mark the end of an era at the club.

Thus, Modric could be an altered role come next season. With a young midfielder, possibly Jude Bellingham set to arrive, the veteran could move into a mentorship role with the occasional appearance in big games.

This season, however, Carlo Ancelotti will continue to use him as one of the backbones of the side and deploy the maestro in the must-win fixtures coming up later this month.

At 37 years of age, Modric has started 16 La Liga games over 24 appearances this season in the competition. He has scored four goals and provided three assists in that process in addition to creating eight big chances with an average of 1.8 key passes per game.
