Modric ended Ronaldo and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi's decade-long dominance of the prestigious award when he claimed the prize after winning a third successive Champions League title with Madrid and helping Croatia reach the World Cup final. He then explained both of their situations while saying "I played in England, Spain, Italy, Portugal, in the national team, while he is still in Spain". For him, life is a challenge. "I'm grateful to him for that, because it was a really nice gesture". He's an excellent player and I think [it's a transfer] that would be good for the club and the player. However, he doesn't miss anything in Juventus. The fans have the right to whistle when they are not happy with someone, they have whistled me too.
Portugal global Ronaldo joined Serie A champions Juventus from Real Madrid in a £99.2m deal in the summer.
Nevertheless, the Russians completed a Champions League double over the defending champions.
Toshack, who gave Bale his Wales debut at the age of 16 in 2006, said he felt the former Spurs player could be on the move and added that injuries "have held him back". "We always want to have their support, we need that. I get the feeling they are already looking for someone to go in afterwards".
Asked whether he misses Messi, Ronaldo told several Italian newspapers: "No, maybe he misses me!"More news: U.S. Suspects Chinese Intelligence Behind Marriott Hack
"I have not seen if he was whistled by the fans or not, but the only thing I can say about Isco is that he has been here for many years and he is a courageous player".
Solari took responsibility for a lineup I that included seven players aged 23 or under, and others including Marcelo, Isco and Asensio who had not played much La Liga football lately. Juventus is a solid club. In the future, I do not know.
Since losing 3-0 at Eibar in LaLiga in their first match with Solari as permanent boss, Real have played four times in all competitions and won on each occasion.
Caught in the middle are the Real Madrid players themselves, who respect Solari but also have empathy for their team-mate.
