Luca Modric is a Croatia international football player who currently features for the Spanish and European giants Real Madrid. He is a creative midfielder and is rated as one of the best in the world in his position.

Modric made his professional club career at Croatian powerhouse Dinamo Zagreb in 2002 and played for them until the summer of 2008. He made 112 league appearances and scored 31 times. He also played in the UEFA Champions League, won the Croatian First League title in 2006, 2007 and 2008 and was adjudged as the Croatian First League Player of the Year in 2007.

Tottenham Hotspur signed the hugely talented Croatian midfielder in the summer of 2008 for 16.5 million pounds and he soon established himself at White Hart Lane, his enchanting skills as a playmaker making Spurs a top-four contender in the Premier League every season.

In the summer of 2012 Madrid signed Modric from Tottenham for £33 million on a five-year contract. He made 124 appearances in the Premier League for Spurs, scoring 13 goals in the process. However, the Croatian failed to impress in his first campaign in La Liga.

Modric made his international debut for Croatia in March 2006 in a friendly international against Argentina and represented his nation at Euro 2008. He was selected for the official UEFA Euro 2008 Team of the competition. Modric has featured in over 65 international matches for his nation and is regarded as one his country’s greatest ever players.
