Luka Modric has agreed to a new contract with Real Madrid
that will keep him at the club until the conclusion of next season.
Modric, who earned his 150th cap in Croatia‘s 1-1 tie with France on Monday,
also signed a one-year contract a year ago.
He joined Real from Tottenham Hotspur in 2012 and has since played 436 times for the Spanish giants,
winning the Champions League five times and three La Liga titles.
In April, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti stated, “Modric will conclude his career with Real Madrid.”
“I’m not sure when, but it’s everyone’s plan. It’s apparent that the club and management have no objections to extending his contract.”
Modric has continued to start in midfield alongside Casemiro
Eduardo Camavinga has made an impression in his first season,
frequently as a substitute, and Madrid has reportedly agreed to buy Aurelien Tchouameni, a fellow French youth, from Monaco.
Modric, on the other hand, was never expected to follow Isco, Gareth Bale, and Marcelo out the door at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The veteran Croatian is still an important part of Los Blancos’ midfield,
and he put in a series of outstanding performances last month when they won the Champions League.
The 36-year-contract old’s was slated to expire at the end of June, but both the player and the club were confident that new terms would be negotiated.
And on Wednesday, Real Madrid confirmed that Modric has signed a new deal in the Spanish capital.
Modric joined Real Madrid for £30 million from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2012, although he struggled in his first season in La Liga.
