The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder is, perhaps, not the first name on many people’s minds when it comes to a Modric replacement.

But the Italy international is one of the best out there, and shares common traits with Modric. He’s also a great dribbler, superb passer and often dictates games from the centre of the midfield.

Although PSG rate Verratti very highly, and will likely seek a big fee should Real Madrid come calling in the near future.
