Luka Modric has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo will not be leaving Real Madrid this summer.
Reports this week have suggested that the Portuguese could be about to call time on his nine-year stay at the Bernabeu, with Juventus said to be interested.
Speaking after Croatia's World Cup quarter-final win over Russia, Modric said go AS: "Let's see what happens.
"I don't think he's going to go and I would like him to stay because he's the best player in the world. He means a lot and hopefully he will stay.
"I think he's going to stay, that's my opinion. It would be very good if he stayed because I can't imagine him in any other European team."
