Luka Modric Extends Contract With Real Madrid For Another Season

Real Madrid announced on Wednesday that Luka Modric had signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until the conclusion of next season.

The Croatia midfielder, who will be 37 in September, was a crucial member of Carlo Ancelotti’s team that won La Liga and the Champions League last season. Real Madrid C. F. and Luka Modric have agreed to extend the player’s contract until June 30, 2023, according to a statement released by the club.

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 crowns.

In April, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said, “Modric will conclude his career at Real Madrid.”

“I’m not sure when, but it’s everyone’s plan. The club and management have no objections to extending his contract.”

Modric has continued to start in midfield with Casemiro and Toni Kroos, both club legends.

Eduardo Camavinga has made an impression in his debut season, frequently as a substitute, and Madrid has allegedly agreed to buy Aurelien Tchouameni, a fellow French youth, from Monaco.

On the other hand, Modric was never anticipated to follow Isco, Gareth Bale, and Marcelo out the door at the Santiago Bernabeu.
