A court case could keep Luke Modric from purchasing his luxury Dubrovnik villa. The Croatian football captain and Real Madrid star midfielder has his eye on the stunning Villa Bella overlooking the Old City of Dubrovnik and the Adriatic Sea and has already visited the villa and taken a photo with his wife from the panoramic terrace.
However, according a report from Dubrovacki Vjesnik, the purchase isn't as straight forward as the football ace would like. The villa, valued 15 million Euros, is at the centre of a court case between the owners and the City of Dubrovnik. Located in the elite suburb of St. Jacob the spacious villa and gardens sits directly next to a public park and the City of Dubrovnik, according to the report, is suing the owners as in the renovation of the villa they claim that the owners took part of the park.
Although the case is still active it remains to be seen whether Modric has the patience to wait for the outcome or look for his place in the sun in another seaside location.
