Luka Modric is one of the most entertaining footballers in world football to watch, and he absolutely loves a dummy.
It's such a simple maneuver to pull off compared to your elasticos, Maradonas and other skill moves but it's one that he absolute perfects.
Long before the 32-year old became the player we are in the presence of today, Modric's spacial awareness and innate football brain is there to see in this sublime passage of play where the former Spurs midfielder deftly dummies the ball twice in a matter of seconds and completely rinses the opposition players that dared to put him under pressure.
Never has a footballer made conjured up such positive attacking play in a matter of movements, without even needing to touch the ball.
The mesmeric sequence, like nothing you've ever seen before, is from back when he was an unknown quantity playing for Dinamo Zagreb in his native Croatia.
But it quickly became evident that his mercurial talents were worthy of playing in a more high-profile environment.
Juande Ramos snapped him up for at Spurs for a club-record equalling £16.5 million fee in 2008, and after starring at White Hart Lane in his four seasons at the club, Modric joined the mighty Real Madrid for a reported £30 million fee in 2012.
In the Spanish capital, Modric has gone from strength to strength, playing a pivotal role in recent successes. At the Bernabeu, he has collected one La Liga title, one Copa Del Rey, three Club World Cups and an incredible three Champions Leagues.
When debating or discussing the best midfielders in the world, Modric is undoubtedly right at the forefront of the conversation .
At the moment, Modric is on the treatment table suffering from a muscle injury in his right leg. Real will be hoping he is fit in time for the Champions League round of 16 second leg against Paris Saint-Germain.
