Modric reveals what will happen to Barcelona when Messi leaves
Real Madrid’s Luka Modric has said Barcelona can succeed without Lionel Messi.
According to the Croatian, Los Blancos also coped with Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit.
Madrid snatched the LaLiga title from Barca last season, their biggest piece of silverware since Ronaldo left for Juventus in 2018.
Though Los Blancos have struggled in the Champions League since they lost their Portuguese star, they have eventually adapted to his absence.
With Messi pushing for an exit from the Camp Nou, Modric sees similarities between the two situations.
“It would be a huge loss. Like when Cristiano left. But you can’t think about the past. It’s football and that’s it.
“If it happens it will be a huge loss for the prestige of the league. But we need to go forward. Other players will become stars.
“When Ronaldo left, the same thing happened, the life of Real Madrid went on without him and it will be the same for Barcelona and La Liga without Messi,” Modric told Goal.
