Real Madrid has announced that Luka Modric, the Croatian playmaker, has agreed to extend his contract with the club for another year. The 37-year-old midfielder, who joined Real from Tottenham in 2012, will now remain with the Spanish giants until at least the end of June 2024. This contract extension comes as Modric’s previous deal was set to expire this summer, potentially allowing him to leave on a free transfer.
During his tenure at Real Madrid, Modric has enjoyed immense success, winning the Champions League five times and clinching three LaLiga titles. He was instrumental in helping Croatia reach the 2018 World Cup final and was awarded the prestigious Ballon d’Or that same year. Despite rumored interest from Saudi Arabia, Modric expressed his joy in staying at Real Madrid and referred to it as his “Home Sweet Home” in a tweet following the contract announcement.
The contract extension provides Real Madrid with continued access to Modric’s exceptional skills and experience, ensuring his presence on the team for the next year and solidifying his place in the club’s history.
