Sergio Ramos currently plays for Paris Saint-Germain, but the Spaniard is a Real Madrid icon and has shared the pitch with Modric.
Gareth Bale, who announced his retirement from football earlier this year, has also played with Luka Modric at Real Madrid. Modric remains a teammate of both Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos, who are still with Real Madrid.
Luka Modric also played with Casemiro at Real Madrid before the Brazilian international left the Spanish side to join Manchester United in the summer transfer window of 2022. Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric meanwhile are compatriots and they have played together at Croatia national football team.
