Luka Mo­dric

A few years ago, weeks into his de­but sea­son with Real Madrid, Mo­dric was voted as the worst big­money buy in La Liga. Real had paid nearly $40 mil­lion to move the diminu­tive mid­fielder from Tot­ten­ham, and when Mo­dric strug­gled to set­tle down, he was voted as the worst sign­ing in a poll con­ducted by a Span­ish news­pa­per. Mo­dric has now bloomed into one of the world’s best mid­field­ers and re­cently won his fourth Cham­pi­ons League win­ners tro­phy.
