Everyone is as shocked as Modric, says Madrid starlet Valverde’s wife

Fede Valverde is in the form of his life for Real Madrid and even managed to get on the scoresheet against Eibar with a neat finish from the edge of the box.

The positives for the youngster are not just on the field either, as his celebration confirmed that he and his wife were expecting their first child.

“I’m sure everyone will have the same expression as Luka [Modric],” Valverde’s wife Mina wrote on Instagram beside a photo of the celebration, as the Croatian appeared to have a look of surprise etched on his face.

“I didn’t want anything to interrupt the form Fede was on, with all the competitions and important matches where it was a chance for him to gain a first-team spot,” she said.
