During that time, the 35-year-old was involved in two goals and one assist, beating his other teammates to the award.
Modric despite nearing the end of his playing days has become a very important unit in Zinedine Zidane’s set up and the club are already working on extending his contract for another year.
It will be all fun to see ‘Lukita’ be at the club for one more year, producing the same commanding performances he has come up with in the last two years.
