Real Madrid star Luka Modric insisted that he is extremely happy at the European champion, amid links with Inter. Modric – who was crowned UEFA's 2017-18 Player of the Year on Thursday – has been at the centre of speculation regarding a move to Serie A side Inter.

However, Croatia captain and midfielder Modric said that he could not be happier with the Champions League holder. "I am in the best club of the world. I want to be here," Modric told reporters after beating former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo to the award in Monaco.

"I am not happy, I am super happy being here, very quiet and I just like to keep working doing well things like last six years."

Modric – who also won the Golden Ball at the World Cup in Russia after leading Croatia to the final – added: "As I already said, I am really happy to be here."

"I have been working to achieve as high as possible, so thanks to god I am here. This is the best year of my career collectively and individually, so I am really enjoying, we have to keep working."
