Each one has its advantage. in close button

  • it is easily identifiable.
  • easy to click.

in cross button

  • doesn't occupy much space.

I suppose you can go with a cross icon as in almost 70% cases while closing a modal the user clicks on blank space rather than clicking on close button or icon for closing it. as it is easy to do rather than clicking on specific area.
