WATCH: Proof That Luka Modric Is The Best Midfielder In the World

Is Luka Modric the best midfielder in the world? Well, watching his compilation against Juventus in the Champions League final will prove he is indeed the best play-maker in football.

While Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos, among others, grabbed the lion share of attention following their heroics, and exaggerations, Modric's brilliance from the middle of the park went under the radar.

Ronaldo bagged a brace, scoring either side of the break, notching up his 600th career goal in the process. Ramos was at his defensive best in the heart of the Real Madrid's back line not to mention up to his usual shithouse tactics.

Sure, Juan Cuadrado stood on him but Ramos exaggerated the contact so much it prompted the referee to brandish the Colombian winger with his second yellow card as he got sent off minutes after coming on.

From breaking up attacks, starting them off to creating goals. Unbelievable performance.

His outing even yielded high praise from ex-Manchester United hero Javier Hernandez who believes the little Croatian deserves the Ballon d'Or award over his club teammate Ronaldo.

Once Real Madrid wrapped up their 12th European trophy, 'Chicharito' posted the following message on Twitter. The post translated reads, "Modric Ballon d'Or please! Huge! Wonderful!"

The Mexican international enjoyed a season at the Bernabeu on loan from United in 2014 before securing a permanent deal with Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen.

But the striker struck a bond with the 31-year-old maestro while even suggested that he's one of the best signings the club have ever made, per Marca.

Modric joined the Los Blancos in 2012 from Spurs for a fee in the region of £30 million, and has spent five seasons with the European giants becoming a vital part of the sides success domestically and on the European front.

The midfield maestro has won the La Liga title, Copa del Rey and an incredible three Champions League trophies.

Does Hernandez have a point in his choice? Should Modric win the Ballon d'Or award?
