Luka Modric remains a key player for Real Madrid even at 37 years of age. And the club have been left sweating about his fitness situation ahead of some very important games. The club will face Osasuna in the Copa del Rey final this weekend, before taking on Manchester City in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final tie just a few days after that.
Thus, it would be a boost for Real Madrid, if Modric is fit enough to feature in those games. And the latest update surrounding the situation of the Croatian is certainly a positive one.
As reported by Relevo, Modric has exercised with his teammates in a part of the training on Wednesday. He completed part of the session with the group and then did solo work. The Croatian has been tested and the ‘feeling’ has been good.
Thus, it looks like there is a possibility that Modric could be fit to face Osasuna in the Copa del Rey final. Even if not, it is still good news for his chances to make the first leg against Manchester City.
Real Madrid fans will be delighted with Modric update
Real Madrid’s form this season has been inconsistent to say the very least. They suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Real Sociedad in the match before the Copa del Rey final.
Now, that result is not expected to have any impact on the La Liga title race, because that has been over for all intents and purposes for some time now. But it was not good preparation for the final regardless.
In these big games, the club still need someone with the experience of Modric, who has a habit of rising to the occasion. Let’s hope that we get to see the Croatian maestro weave his magic in the upcoming matches.
