Luka Modric, arguably football’s greatest midfielder of all time, is linked to a HUGE move to Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr. In just two and a half years at the club, Modric would earn €100M, making him the third highest payed footballer on the planet, after former (and potentially future) teammate Cristiano Ronaldo and PSG star Kylian Mbappe.
Ultimately, my opinion on this matter aligns with whatever Luka wants. No one deserves this pay day more than he does, and if he feels as though his best course of action is to take the money and rest his legs in Saudi Arabia to focus on the National Team, then I’m all for it. However, we all know Luka hasn’t lost his magic yet and can easily continue to perform (and even dominate) at Real Madrid against world-class opposition. He has the chance to add even more silverware to his already breath-taking collection.
If you were Luka, what would you do?
We just drew the Netherlands in the Nations League semifinal.
Modric making 360k euro per week is small beans for the greatest midfielder of a generation. That is 15mm a year which after Spanish taxes leaves you with 7.5mm. The guy won’t be able to even buy a nice flat in London let alone improve Croatian football infrastructure. Making a 100mm with no taxes would be game changing for him.
Take it from me, you notice the first few million you make but then the next ones don’t really matter until you get over 100 million
Bro oh my goodness gracious. I normally never fall for “The Truths” bait. But this guy is such a fuck 😂. Man said “take it from me”. Mate ur a fucking loser ain’t nobody taking shit as advice from you.
Either ur a top tier troll or filled with a disgusting amount of delusion.

DCC with a red today
Don’t know what happened but the other guy was trolling him hard I saw on a clip and DCC wanted to give him a knuckle sendvic
Olmo with a proper wundergol today
We all want to play with Croats but olmo on that right side could have given us enough to take the cup
The Vekic match starts momentarily.
Why play for money? He already earns €365,000 a week, the last thing he needs is money. But with that kind of money he could really build better infrastructure for footballing in Croatia. It depends on what he wants to do.
Go back to old stomping grounds at Dinamo. Why play for money to only conclude a career at a nonexistent league? He won’t get recognized in Saudi Arabia like Ronaldo is. MLS is always a potential opportunity. Hundreds of thousands of Croatians across Canada and the states would attend to see him play.
He can always play at dinamo after two years of making bank in Arabia
Play a fun year at dinamo at like 42;)
Look at jaromir jagr in hockey
Owns that Czech team and still laces them up at 50
Would be fun to see luka own and hnl team and play
I doubt any MLS team can pay $81M or whatever it is the Saudis are going to spend on him. The highest paid player in MLS is Shaqiri who is making $8.1M, Chicharito $6M, Higuain $5.7M, and I have no idea why anyone is paying Altidore $4.2M.
Man .. Kramaric scores beautiful goals!!
First one was a flying kick and the second one was the classic nifty footwork to create space golasso!
He is an excellent 60/30 player for us depending on tactics.
There is a happy medium. Playing too much at this age will speed the decline. Removing yourself from top level competition will seal your fate.
We all know those stara babas who kept doing their daily walk each day. As soon as they stopped, they were done.
I’m fine with perisic playing hnl
In many ways modric almost has an ideal situation for longevity at real. There is a deep bench where is being decently rested
Only posting to hopefully knock off this “The truth” clown from top. The less “The truth” is read, the better.
I think it’s not unreasonable for luka to take the money given all he’s achieved
As an extremely wealthy individual with a lot of business success, I know both that money isn’t everything but it can also change things a lot.
The only catch is, when modric signs that contract he also signs away his soccer career. When a horse stops running it dies. When modric leaves top flight football, he’ll quickly wither and won’t be able to produce for the National team anymore anyway.
As I’ve predicted anyway, we’re going to be starting to have a lot of awkward convos along the lines of thank you luka but now you’re hurting the team
But if Perisic plays high level football in the EPL at an older age, then he dies, no?
Which is it?
He’s apparently already turned it down.
Much like Dalic, he reads this site and acts accordingly. 😉
He’s turning it down, and is demanding €150M per season on a three-year guaranteed contract.
Kramaric with a nice game. 2nd goal was a beauty.
Take it Luka.
You’ve already conquered football.
You’re a legend in the top team in the top league with Real Madrid, and have collected FIVE Champions League titles. Messi couldn’t even do that.
You’ve managed to collect two World Cup medals too, and might even nab a Nations League trophy this June.
Gotta start thinking about what you can do after football, and the impact that €100M that you gather every year (likely tax free) can do for whatever positive projects in Croatia.
Shit…with a two-year contract, you could buy NK Zadar, build a brand new stadium, and a football academy.
If Zadar can produce Modric, Gvardiol, Livakovic, Vrsaljko, Subasic, Dado Prso…imagine what a proper academy with facilities would produce.
If you’re not interested in that, then just invest €100M into whatever Rimac is doing next. He’s the Catholic Elon Musk.
Either way, demand at least €150M over three years and see what the Arabs offer
tough call, I guess depends on if he wants to own a team one day or not. (cash would help)
I would stay at Real if they wanted me
Take the loot
