The injury to Luka Modric hurts Madrid’s hopes of making it to the Copa del Rey final.

Carlo Ancelotti, the manager of Real Madrid, said on Friday that star player Luka Modric might not be able to play in the Copa del Rey final on May 6 against Osasuna because he hurt his thigh.

On the weekend, Madrid lost 4-2 to Girona, and the 37-year-old was on the pitch for just over an hour before he was taken off.

The Los Blancos are trying to win the Copa del Rey for the twentieth time in their history.

Ancelotti told reporters before Madrid’s LaLiga game against Almeria on Saturday, “He got hurt in the game against Girona and can’t play.”

“It depends on how things go, and we don’t know if he’ll be ready for the Copa game. “It hurts us, and we hope he gets better quickly so he can play in the important games,” the manager of Real Madrid said.

Trying to keep the title On May 9, Madrid will play Manchester City in the first game of their semi-final in the Champions League.

Spanish sources say that Saudi Arabia made Modric a huge offer of €60 million for a two-year contract, which he turned down.

Even though Saudi Arabia has given him a contract worth 30 million euros per season, the Croat wants to end his career in Madrid.

The 37-year-old’s Real Madrid deal will end at the end of this season. He joined Los Blancos in 2012 and has been a big part of their winning five Champions Leagues.

“I’m doing everything I can to do my best and show that I should be allowed to stay here. Modric said in February of this year, “I can’t do more. I’ve always had a good relationship with the club, and that won’t change.”

“Just like last year, there’s no need to hurry. We’re already halfway through the season and still have a lot to do. Let’s see what happens,” he said. “I’m focused on that, on getting back to my best level.”

In 2018, Modric also won the Ballon d’Or for the first time, putting an end to the long reigns of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
