Real Madrid Playmaker Ace Warns Premier League Duo Off Making January Bids

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has warned off Manchester United and Chelsea from making any bids for him in the January transfer window as he is more than happy to stay in the Spanish capital, the Daily Star reports.

The former Tottenham man went through a difficult first season at the Bernabeu and last week revealed how the likes of Chelsea, United and Paris Saint Germain all tried to make attempts at landing his signature.

However, he is now displaying the kind of form that prompted Madrid to bring him to the club and speaking whilst with the Croatian national side ahead of their World Cup playoff tie against Iceland this weekend he insisted that he will not be looking to leave the club in the new year.

“I’m playing well because I am happy and I am content,” he said.

“I was happy in England and it showed in my game. Now I am in Madrid and it also shows.”

United boss David Moyes failed with his attempts to bring Modric back to the Premier League in the summer and instead turned his attentions to acquiring Marouane Fellaini for £27.5m from former club Everton.

Modric has so far featured 17 times this season but has yet to hit the back of the net.
