Modric: Real Madrid players didn't expect Ronaldo to leave

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric admits the players didn't expect Cristiano Ronaldo to leave.

Ronaldo joined Juventus for a club record €112m fee last summer.

“I didn't expect either [Coach Zinedine] Zidane or Ronaldo would leave," Modric told France Football.

“In fact, when the rumours about Cristiano first came up we made best among ourselves in the dressing room and we were sure he would stay.

“But, well, everyone makes their own choices in life."
