Luka Modric believes Cristiano Ronaldo will stay at Real Madrid despite links with Juventus.
As reported earlier, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has stunned Madrid by agreeing to a move to Juve and is set to sign a four-year contract worth €30 million (£26.5m/$35m) per season .
The Serie A giants still have to negotiate a fee with Madrid and are expected to have to pay upwards of €100m (£88m/$117m), but could go as high as €120m (£106m/$140.5m).
Ronaldo’s Madrid team-mate Modric, however, does not believe that a transfer will materialise.
“I don’t think he’s going to leave, and I’d like him to stay because he’s the best player in the world,” the 32-year-old said.
“I think he’s going to stay; that’s my opinion. It would be great if he did, because I can’t imagine him at any other club.
“Let’s see what happens.”
