Croatian midfielder Luka Modric has put pen to paper on a fresh one-year deal
at Real Madrid. The club confirmed the news in an official statement on Tuesday,
which reads: “Real Madrid CF and Luka Modrić have agreed to extend the
player’s contract, which remains with the club until June 30, 2022
The 35-year-old’s previous deal had been set to expire in the summer, but he reached
an agreement with Real to extend his stay at the club months ago and it has simply been
a case of waiting for everything to be made official.
Well, it’s taken a lot longer than fans might have hoped, but the news is finally here
as Real have confirmed on their official website that Modric will be sticking around the
Santiago Bernabéu Stadium for at least one more season.
Keeping Modric around has been one of Real’s top priorities this season.
Despite approaching his 36th birthday, the Croatia international continues to excel
at the highest level, forming an excellent midfield trio alongside Toni Kroos and
Casemiro. Modric has made more than 250 appearances for the club after joining from
Tottenham in 2012, having spent four years in north London.
