With his Paris Saint-Germain contract up this summer, Mbappe looked nailed on to be leaving the Parc des Princes on a free transfer.
Real were in pole position and it was even reported that Mbappe received part of a preliminary signing on bonus back in December.
However, the World Cup winner performed a shock u-turn and instead signed a new mammoth three-year deal with PSG.
Modric, meanwhile is out of contract on June 30 - which means the Champions League final against Liverpool could be his final game for Los Blancos.
However, the Croatian wants to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu and build on ten glorious years but won't be getting ideas from Mbappe.
"And I hope the club won't do that to me!"
"We have a good relationship. I have said many times that I want to finish my career here."

Karim Benzema, Mbappe's compatriot, put up a Tupac Instagram post that many felt was related to his France teammate.
He has since claimed the picture was nothing to do with the Mbappe situation, and did not feel the need to talk about him in a pre-Champions League final interview.
Modric too is keen on ensuring that the focus is firmly on the chase for a 14th European Cup rather than the Mbappe saga.
He added: "We had no expectations. There was a lot of talk about this, for a year, but we didn't know anything; if it was going to happen or not, and that is why we have to close that topic and not talk about it anymore.
"We have the Champions League final, which is the most important thing of all. Real Madrid will continue to be at the top, above any player, anything, and there is no need to go over it over and over."
It's been reported that Mbappe will earn an eye-watering £1 million-a-week, while there's even talk that his new deal gives him a say in the next manager, and will see him assume captain and penalty duties going forward.
