Real’s New No. 10
Real’s New No. 10
Aside from starring in Real Madrid’s midfield, Luka Modric is perhaps best known for his bouncing, flowing locks. He’s been rocking the “long hair, don’t care” look for as long as we can remember, and it suits him quite well:

But no one realized just how much his hair ‘made’ his look until he went and chopped it all off!
No. Just, no Luka. This was a mistake. Take it back. Take it back!
Yes, that is a grown adult next to Arbeloa. (Image: Modric’s Facebook)
What in the world led Modric to undergo this appalling transformation?
Apparently, the Croatia star had promised Real teammate Arvalo Arbeloa that he would get a new hairstyle if they won the Champions League. He didn’t wait long to make good on that promise, chopping his hair off the day after Real won the coveted trophy.

You would think that the man who also cuts Cristiano Ronaldo’s hair could’ve given Modric a better look! Let’s just hope his hair grows quickly.
Thank you, Internet!
Sergio Ramos’ dramatic late equalizer in the Champions League final has been replayed countless of times by now, but you haven’t seen it like this. Footage of that moment has emerged from Real Madrid’s official viewing party at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, and it is truly EPIC.
Watch 85,000+ explode all at once:
Strangely, we haven’t been able to locate any footage of the same moment from the Vicente Calderon viewing party, but we imagine it would look something like this:
Abs of steel
Here’s your weekly Cristiano Ronaldo highlight that makes you forget to breathe for a moment. What a goal!
Ronaldo gave Real Madrid an injury time equalizer against Valencia with this ridiculous backheel kick, but unfortunately, time ran out on Real as they were looking to make up more ground in the title race.
In a righteous world, this goal should just automatically give Real Madrid the title. What’s that, Atletico? You have more points than Real? Sorry, overruled. Ronaldo’d.
Sergio Ramos is a defender by trade, but that doesn’t mean he can’t create the occasional stroke of magic on offense. So, to warm up for Real Madrid’s clash against Bayern Munich, Ramos dug deep into his bag of tricks for a crazy goal scored from behind the goal line.
This is pretty, pretty good:
And it seems as though this trickery inspired Ramos in Tuesday’s match. He scored not once…
…but twice to lead Real to their first final since 2002.
Nothing this guy does surprises us anymore. Still, you HAVE to see the two goals Cristiano Ronaldo scored against Osasuna on Saturday.
Think he’s back to 100%, just in time for Bayern Munich on Tuesday?
We’ll go with our gut here and say, yes. Yes he is.

And so, it has come to this.
After Gareth Bale scored his amazing solo goal on Wednesday night to clinch the Copa del Rey for Real Madrid, the most expensive player of all time could have gone on Twitter to thank pretty much anyone; his fans who believed in him; his family or girlfriend; Florentino Pérez for signing all those crazy paychecks; even Cristiano Ronaldo for getting injured so he could shine in the spotlight for once.
But who did Bale thank? The ball.

Yup, marketing at it’s finest. If you did not know, the maker of the brazuca, adidas, also sponsors both Real Madrid and Gareth Bale
And of course, the ball duly replied:
