Real Madrid defender Carvajal

Madrid, Oct 10 : Real Madrid’s Spain international full back Dani Carvajal has said that he would one day like to play in England.

Speaking in the magazine ‘Libero’, Carvajal, who is currently out with a muscle injury, admitted that he would “love to play in the Premier League. It is an experience that I want to have and I don’t want to end my career without having,” he explained.

The full back also looked at the nominees to win the Balon D’Or, saying Madrid midfielder Luka Modric was his favourite to win the award, reports Xinhua news agency.

“Modric is the essence of football. It’s not all about scoring goals,” he said, comparing the Croatian to former Spain and Barca midfielder Andres Iniesta. “Iniesta had the chance to win but they didn’t give it to him,” commented Carvajal.

He admitted the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo had meant a change in a Real Madrid side which has failed to win in its last four games, but insisted the departure of the Portuguese star meant the side had to “play more as a team.”
