The still reigning Ballon d’Or from 2018 isn’t having his best season with the club, he has suffered several injuries and he doesn’t seem to have a date of return to full fitness yet.
Despite being one of the best players on the pitch when he returns, there is no way that Real Madrid will remain patient for him to make his comeback.
Los Blancos are not known for giving too many second chances to the players, and they are not going to start doing it with Luka Modric.
Either he gets back to his level of performance, or he won’t be able to continue at the club next season.
