Modric completed his drawnout transfer yesterday.
He declared: "Yes, Iâ€™m very happy to be able to be here in the best and the greatest club in the world, full of spectacular players, with the worldâ€™s best coachâ€¦ I couldnâ€™t ask for anything more. Iâ€™m very, very happy.
"I was waiting every minute for something to happenâ€¦ finally it happened last night. When they let me knowâ€¦ I canâ€™t explain how I felt. Iâ€™m so very happy to be here.
"It means a great deal to me because, as Iâ€™ve said, itâ€™s a great club. Last season was excellent, and itâ€™s probably going to be repeated this year; thereâ€™s also the Champions title. This is a club that always fights for all possible titles. It makes me proud and it is an honour to be a part of this club. I hope to be able to help the team to win the maximum number of trophies."
