Speaking at a recent media appearance, former Real Madrid star and club legend Luis Figo has sung praises of veteran midfielder Luka Modric.

The former Portuguese international lauded the 38-year-old superstar for the way he continues to defy age and continue to perform at the highest level.

Despite having turned 38 years old earlier this month, Modric continues to be an elite performer for club and country.

While it is true that his role has taken a marginal hit this season, the midfielder showed his class and quality in the game against Getafe just before the international break.

And, speaking to RTL, Figo had some special words of praise for Modric, as he said:

“Luka is a good friend, I have nothing but words of praise for him, not only as a professional but also as a person.

“It’s amazing what he does at his age, as if he runs on batteries, because of the talent he constantly shows. I’m satisfied that he’s happy doing what he loves and I hope that he will continue to succeed.”

The former Real Madrid and Barcelona superstar was then asked to choose between his compatriot and another Los Blancos legend Cristiano Ronaldo and Modric, to which he replied:

“They are different, they are very good friends, I will not choose one because then one would lose. They are the best in the world in their positions, they wrote history and continue to write history, and that is the most important thing.”

Modric signed a new contract with Real Madrid earlier this year to continue at the club for one more season.

But things have not started well for the Croatian as he has found himself warming the benches more often than not, a situation that has certainly not pleased him.

However, the 38-year-old remains committed to turning his situation around at the Santiago Bernabeu in the weeks to come.

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
