Today: A. I. 💙 Luka Modrić.
It was 2012 and Spanish newspaper Marca decided to run an online poll for its readers to choose the best and worst signings of the year. Looking back, it makes sense that Jordi Alba won as the best but, surprisingly, the worst of the lot was Luka Modrić, who had joined Real Madrid from Tottenham.
How the Croatian went from being the worst signing to becoming a legend of Real Madrid and world football can only be explained in one way: he signed a deal with the devil.
Luckily, with the help of artificial intelligence, I had access to that obscure contract in which I discovered that, as always, the devil had his tail in the bag.
