Luka Modric has made a link between the possible departure of Lionel Messi from Barcelona and Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.
Los Blancos managed to rebound by winning the Supercopa de Espana and LaLiga Santander in the 2019/20 season after Real Madrid faced a poor season despite winning the European Super Cup when in 2018 the Portuguese made a transfer to Juventus.
“It would be a huge loss, like when Cristiano left,” Modric told AFP.
“But you can’t think about the past. It’s football and that’s it.”
“If it happens it will be a huge loss for the prestige of the league.”
“But we need to go forward. Other players will become stars.”
“When Cristiano left, the same thing happened; the life of Real Madrid went on without him and it will be the same for Barcelona and LaLiga without Messi.”
