Luka Modric admits he still talks to Sergio Ramos every day

Real Madrid welcome Paris Saint-Germain to the Santiago Bernabeu tomorrow evening in a titanic Champions League date. A place in the quarter-final of Europe’s premier competition is at stake and PSG have a slight advantage courtesy of their 1-0 victory in the first leg back at the Parc des Princes.

Kylian Mbappe was the decisive man on that night, scoring a dramatic winner in stoppage time to hand his team a lead. He’s a doubt for tomorrow’s game due to an injury he sustained during training on Monday, while Madrid are sweating on the fitness of midfield metronome Toni Kroos ahead of the game.

Both sides are top of their respective leagues by considerable distance. Madrid are eight points clear of Sevilla in La Liga while PSG are 13 ahead of Nice in Ligue 1. Madrid are coming into the game in winning form; they beat Real Sociedad 4-1 on Saturday. PSG aren’t; they lost 1-0 to Nice the very same evening.

Speaking pre-match as carried by Cope, Luka Modric was asked what it’ll be like to see his old teammate Sergio Ramos again. The Andalusian isn’t fit to play but he will travel with PSG to Madrid. “I talk to Sergio almost every day,” Modric said. “It’s going to be nice to see him again. The Bernabeu has to receive him with love because Sergio is a legend of the club, one of the best defenders in its history. I don’t want to offend anybody but for me he’s the best defender who’s every played for Real Madrid.”
