The midfielder is not getting the playing time he would like after turning down a big Saudi offer

There is a 'Luka Modric Case' at Real Madrid. After Carlo Ancelotti acknowledged at the end of the game against Napoli that the midfielder is "a bit angry" with the few minutes he is getting at the start of the 2023/24 season, 'El Larguero' reported that the anger of the Croatian player is real and is not only due to the prominence he is getting per se, but to an unfulfilled promise by the Italian coach.

According to journalist Manu Carreño, 'Carletto' spoke to Luka in the summer to tell him that, if he stayed at the Santiago Bernabéu, his role would not change. The No.10 had a big offer from Saudi Arabia and even considered saying goodbye, but in the end he stayed because the coach made it clear to him that he was still counting on him and that he would continue to be very important in his project.

However, he only started one of the first four games of the campaign and during the break at the beginning of September, he expressed his concern to Ancelotti.

The coach's response did not change: he reassured him and reminded him that seasons are very long. When it comes down to it, however, it has once again become very clear that Modric is a second-choice player for Madrid. Since the resumption of club competition, the Merengues have played six games and he has only been on the pitch for 179 minutes (approximately 33% of the total). Modric's participation figures have plummeted compared to recent seasons.

Although the aforementioned source assures that the player's situation can be redirected, he also recalls that Inter Miami are very interested in obtaining his services and have put on the table the possibility of a change of scenery in winter. We will see how the situation of a very important player in the recent history of the club progresses.
