Luka Modric has praised Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe, saying “great players are always welcome at Real Madrid“.
France World Cup-winner Mbappe has been consistently linked with a transfer to the La Liga giants, with countryman Zinedine Zidane currently in charge at the Bernabeu.
However, PSG sporting director Leonardo has repeatedly refuted claims of Mbappe’s rumoured departure, claiming the Ligue 1 club will look to tie down the 22-year-old’s future.
“You hear a lot of stories about the players who’ll be coming in and who’ll be leaving, but I can’t go into that,” Modric said. “Mbappe is a great player and he’s proved that with his national team and PSG.
“Great players are always welcome at Real Madrid, but it wouldn’t be right of me to speak about players at other clubs, particularly at this stage of the season.
“We’ll have to see what happens next season, but he’s a top player and is amongst the best in the world.”
