Former Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric has said that Real Madrid is the club where he has been "most settled" in his football career.

After a stint at home team Dinamo Zagreb, the 29-year-old Croatian international joined Spurs in summer 2008 where he became a supporters' favourite during four impressive seasons at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham finished the previous season in the top four but lost their place in the European tournament following Chelsea's Champions League victory.

After that, the Croatian playmaker forced his move to the Santiago Bernabeu, in summer 2012, for around £30m, one season before his friend Gareth Bale followed in his footsteps.

And even though Modric was under scrutiny during his debut season in La Liga, under then-manager Jose Mourinho, the Croatian managed to overcome the situation with Carlo Ancelotti during last campaign to turn into a crucial asset in Real Madrid's run to both the Champions League and the Copa del Rey titles.

Modric has now claimed that even though he has good memories from both Zagreb and Tottenham, he is enjoying his time more than ever at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I've experienced special emotions and made friends at every club I've been at. I think I'm probably more comfortable at Real Madrid than I have been anywhere else," Modric said, as quoted by AS.

Meanwhile, the former Spurs star has claimed that winning the Champions League at Real Madrid last season against Atletico Madrid was the best moment of his football career alongside the day he made his full international debut for Croatia against Argentina.
