The 2018 Ballon d’Or winner has been in sensational form for Real Madrid this season, and is one of the key reasons why Carlo Ancelotti’s side leads La Liga by eight points.
This season, Modric has delivered a slew of masterclasses, the most recent of which came in Los Blancos’ 2-0 win over city rivals Atletico Madrid.
The Croatian maestro was simply too brilliant for Diego Simeone’s midfield, dictating the game’s tempo and orchestrating raids with absolute power.
Modric makes the game appear beautiful almost every time he steps onto the field, and one of the reasons for that is his ability to produce skill moves appropriate of a high-quality winger.
With some wizardry, the metronomic midfielder has left rival players chasing shadows or sprawled out on the turf throughout his Real Madrid career.
