Modric makes Mbappe joke after Real Madrid transfer snub
Luka Modric made a joke about Kylian Mbappe’s decision to snub a transfer to Real Madrid while discussing his contract situation at Santiago Bernabeu.
Paris Saint-Germain talisman Mbappe agreed to terms on a move to Madrid earlier this year, having initially pushed to join the Spanish giants last summer.
The Blancos had been confident of securing the 23-year-old’s services on a free transfer, but he ended up performing a late U-turn and putting pen to paper on a new three-year deal at Parc des Princes.

Modric’s own future has also been the subject of debate recently, with the 36-year-old’s current contract set to expire on June 30.
The Croatian midfielder has previously made it clear he would like to see out his career at the Bernabeu, and has now ruled out the possibility of emulating Mbappe and making a surprise choice on his future.
“I haven’t renewed yet, but I’m not going to do an Mbappe. I hope the club doesn’t do it to me,” Modric has told COPE.
“We have a good relationship. I have said many times that I want to finish my career here.”

Modric went on to insist that the Mbappe saga won’t distract Madrid from their upcoming Champions League final date against Liverpool.
