Luka Modric has become more of a sub player this season – a situation that’s rare to him.

The Croatian has started just once this season, with only 133 minutes of action.

Now 38, Modric has said he’d rethink his future at the club if his situation doesn’t change.

He told Sportske Novosti: “I’m aware that the competition in the midfield is fierce, that these young players are elite and that’s why they’re Real Madrid players.

“Us veterans have to help them develop and I will work hard to be among the key players this season.

“We’ll see what happens, if I’m not a relevant player in the near future I will think about my next moves, I received other offers but my goal was always to stay in Real Madrid.”

Modric was approached by Saudi Arabia during the summer transfer window, but he chose to stay back at Real Madrid, despite the huge pay offer from the oil-rich nation.
