Luka Modric appeared in the match against Girona on Tuesday, and was immediately given an ice pack to his thigh after suffering severe pain. That pain didn’t go away and the reality got worse.
A source from Relevo shared that the Croatian star will be absent for the King’s Cup final against Osasuna (the next 8 days) and the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Manchester City (the next 10 days). Modric is hoping to recover as quickly as possible, but usually these muscle problems tend to take a week to two weeks to heal. You will probably be eliminated from both of those important matches.
The former Tottenham Hotspur player is likely to return for the second leg of the Champions League semi-final at the Etihad on May 17. With Modric out, Fede Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni and Dani Ceballos are all available.
Ceballos are probably the most Modric variety selection that Los Blancos have. Previously, coach Carlo Ancelotti once commented that Ceballos has a similar playing style to the Croatian player.
Modric could move to Saudi Arabia once he leaves Real.
