Modric reveals Ronaldo respect, 'will never play with' Messi

Luka Modric Never Thought Zinedine Zidane Cristano Ronaldo Would Leave Real Madrid

"We spent six wonderful years in Madrid where we developed a friendship and mutual respect", Modric was quoted as saying by France Football.

"In fact when the rumours about Cristiano appeared, we had bets among ourselves and we were certain he would stay, but everyone makes their own decisions".

After picking up FIFA's The Best award last month, he is now among the frontrunners to end the decade-long stranglehold Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have had on the Ballon d'Or when the victor is revealed in December. "The important thing for me is to be on the pitch as I have been for months now".

The 25-year-old has also clinched the Capocannoniere (Serie A Top Scorer) on two occasions with Inter; first in 2015 with 22 goals, and also last season, which saw him net an incredible 29 goals.

But the former Tottenham midfielder said the comparison between him and Ronaldo end there, adding he does not deserve the award. "It's in their hands".

On his chances of breaking the Ballon d'Or monopoly of the Portugal captain and FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi, the Croatian playmaker refused to claim he "deserves" the most coveted individual honour in European football.

Mbappe, a World Cup victor in Russian Federation, has started the new campaign in breathtaking form, hitting 14 goals in just 11 starts for PSG.

"Mbappe is an extraordinary talent, a magnificent promise for the future", Modric said.

"He's really very special".

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has revealed that Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo congratulated him after winning the UEFA Player of the Year award. "I'm sure Kylian is going to keep improving".
