The Spain worldwide has played a bit-part role for Madrid since returning from acute appendicitis in October, with Solari yet to start the midfielder in a La Liga match. For him, life is a challenge. He also invites Lionel Messi to Serie A while saying "I would like him to come to Italy one day".
Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentina's Lionel Messi are the top two names that come to mind when we think of football rivalry.
He's been embracing life in his new surroundings, while Messi has been enjoying life in his old ones.
"I've got fantastic friends, I play in one of the best clubs and you think I go home and cry?" However, he doesn't miss anything in Juventus. The fans have the right to whistle when they are not happy with someone, they have whistled me too.
When Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid this past summer, many felt it would lead to their downfall.
"I have to defend these colours and nothing else counts - if I played against Real Madrid, I would give my best".
"It's very different to Madrid, here it is more of a family".
Solari was asked about the incident, and said that he and his players are ignoring the hyperbole surrounding the club.
"Anyway, congratulations to Modric, he deserves it, but next year we'll see each other again and I'll do everything to be there again", he added.
"For me, it is handsome, to feel that difference". Juventus is a solid club.
"I do not want to have any regrets at the end of my it's a decision I'm going to make, I do not know when, but I'll take it".
Since losing 3-0 at Eibar in LaLiga in their first match with Solari as permanent boss, Real have played four times in all competitions and won on each occasion. "I believed in myself and proved to the people that I'm still an incredible footballer". "He will become like me, I'm 100% sure".
But it was his comments regarding his new teammates, and his comparison with the dressing room at Real Madrid, that really struck a chord.
