The gala to award the Golden Foot awards for 2019 in Montecarlo attracted many stars including Luka Modric. The Real Madrid spoke to Sky Sport about receiving the prestigious award:"It's an honor to receive this big prize, happy to be here and to enjoy this evening. We'll see who wins the next Ballon d'Or, I don't know who it will be, there are a few candidates but we'll only find out in December who won it"
Since Modric was being interviewed by an Italian TV station he was inevitably asked about playing in Serie A:"I like Italy, I follow Serie A because many of my teammates from national team are there. Italians are fantastic. Italy is close to Croatia and people have similar mentalities. I like Italy, we'll see if someday I play in Italy, I can't talk about this because I'm a Real Madrid player. I'm enjoying my time there and at time being I see my future in Madrid".
