Kylian Mbappé must leave PSG to dominate, according to Real Madrid star Luka Modric
The France World Cup winner has been consistently linked with a transfer to Spain’s capital with countryman Zinedine Zidane currently in charge of the La Liga giants.
However, PSG’s sporting director Leonardo refuted claims of Mbappe’s rumoured departure, claiming the club will be looking to secure the 21-year-old’s future in Paris.
Modric believes Mbappe has the ability to reach the top of the game as an individual, but feels he can only get there if he moves to a league with more competition.
“Mbappé has everything to dominate the scene,” Modric told Sportz Dom.
“But I think that to make the leap in quality he needs to go to a championship in which his team does not win so easily.”
Modric – the 2018 Ballon d’Or winner – turns 35 in September but has played 35 matches for Real this season, scoring five goals and creating five assists.
When asked about this future, the Croatian international was adamant he had a couple of seasons left at a high level and hinted he would like to coach with his national team one day.
“I’m sure I can play at a high level for two more years, then we’ll see,” Modric said.
“I would like to end my career at Real, but it will also depend on the club.
“Of course, I’ll do the coaching course. For us, the national team is a feeling above football, both as a player and as a coach I’d be honored to be there”.
