Inter Miami is pursuing the signing of Luka Modric.

British media ‘Mirror’ reported on the 2nd (Korean time), “Lionel Messi wants to sign Modric. Real Madrid striker Predrag Mijatovic claimed that Modric and David Beckham had a meal.”

Miami, of which Beckham is a co-owner, recruited Messi this summer. Messi made history at Barcelona through Barcelona Youth and wore the uniform of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in the 2021-22 season. He left the team after playing two seasons at PSG. There were rumors of a return to Barcelona, ​​but it did not happen and Messi entered Major League Soccer (MLS) in the United States.

My Mami completed the Barcelona connection by recruiting not only Messi, but also Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets. Miami, with its legendary players, has transformed into a different team. Miami was the lowest ranked team in MLS. Messi led the last-place MLS team to win the League Cup. Messi’s performance continued in MLS, and Miami escaped last place. However, with Messi missing due to injury, the team went 3 games without a win.

In such a situation, news came that Messi wanted to recruit Modric. Messi reportedly thought Miami needed to grow further by signing Modric. There is a situation where Messi and Modric, who played against each other in Barcelona and Real uniforms, may play on the same team.

Modric has shown himself as a soccer expert since his days at Tottenham. He added creativity to his attacks based on good technique. He initially played as a winger, but took off after moving to midfield. In the 2010-11 season, he was also named Tottenham Player of the Year. Modric, who performed well, was rumored to be transferring to several teams, and joined Real in the 2012-13 season.

After moving to Real Madrid, Modric was reborn as the world’s best midfielder. He showed off his skills by attempting a sharp pass in attack with Mesut Ozil. With Ozil moving to Arsenal, Modric became the undisputed starter. Modric became the core of Real’s midfield and won the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in the 2013-14 season.메이저사이트

Since the 2015-16 season, Real has completed an all-time midfield. When Casemiro returned from loan from FC Porto, Kroos, Casemiro, and Modric met. They formed the strongest union commonly called ‘Kkamo’.

Casemiro, Kroos and Modric put Real at the top of Europe. In the 2015-16 season, they defeated local rival Atletico Madrid in the final of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) and won the Big Ear. Afterwards, they won the championship in succession in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons, setting a record of 3 consecutive UCL wins. Casemiro, Kroos, and Modric maintained their good form and won the UCL once more in the 2021-22 season.

Modric also created a miracle for the Croatia national team. At the 2018 Russia World Cup, they advanced to the round of 16 by taking first place in Group D, beating Argentina. Croatia reached the finals by defeating Denmark, Russia, and England in succession. Although they lost to France, Croatia achieved the best World Cup performance in soccer history. Modric won the 2018 World Cup Golden Ball and even won the 2018 Ballon d’Or.

But now the Modric era is coming to an end. Modric is 38 years old and is in his twilight years as a soccer player. Real also achieved a generational change with young midfielders including Orélien Chouameni, Jude Bellingham, Federico Valverde, and Eduardo Camavinga. Modric is mainly playing as a substitute this season. Every time he entered the game, he showed his ability to keep up with younger players.

Modric attracted interest from Saudi Arabia and MLS this summer. However, he signed a new contract with Real, agreeing to stay until June 30, 2025. In Miami, it is known that Messi and Beckham moved directly to recruit Modric. It is unclear whether Modric will end his life in Europe and move to MLS.
