Cantona: This Star Is Man Utd’s Modric

Manchester United legend Eric Cantona believes a particular star is as vital as Luka Modric is to Real Madrid.

Reports: Real To Offer R1.16bn For Man Utd Star

The 51-year-old striker, who is a massive admirer of the Croatian playmaker, insists that his fellow Frenchman Paul Pogba is crucial for the Old Trafford club and went as far as calling him the brain of Jose Mourinho’s team.

“I think he is a very creative player and every time you have a good player injured, you suffer,” he told FullTimeDevils.

“He is as important (for United) as Modric is for Real.

“When Modric is injured, it is not the same team, and you can see in the last five or six years, every time he is injured, the team is not the same.

“Pogba is the brain of the team, and Modric is the brain of Real Madrid.”

Griezmann Makes Big Man Utd Admission

The 24-year-old has made eight appearances for the Manchester club this season, scoring three goals and assisting in a further three more.
