Luka Modric seems to be doing his best to tempt Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar to join him at Real Madrid in the coming weeks.
Modric appeared to encourage Neymar to join him in the Spanish capital following Sunday’s friendly between Brazil and Croatia.
Neymar has been heavily linked with a return to La Liga with the European champions, less than a year on from his world-record €222-million move to Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona.
The 26-year-old played a starring role at Anfield in his first appearance since February, coming off the bench to score a brilliant opening goal in Brazil’s 2-0 win.
Afterwards, he was filmed by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) swapping signed shirts with Madrid midfielder Modric, who could not resist a cheeky hint at a transfer in the coming weeks.
As they wrote messages and exchanged jerseys in the tunnel after the match, the Real Madrid midfielder could be heard saying, ‘We’re waiting for you,’ prompting a smile from Neymar.

Modric was later asked about the transfer rumours and, according to Globo, replied: ‘Let’s see what happens!’
