Modric contract extension with Real Madrid on the verge of going through

Even at 35, Luka Modric is one of the most valuable players in the Real Madrid squad considering what he brings to the table. The Croatian has been with Madrid through the highs and lows, and to this day continues to be one of their most important veterans who manages to secure a starting berth. 

Having last signed an extension in 2016, Modric’s contract with the club expires at the end of the season. However, with the latest reports to emerge out of Spain, Real Madrid have verbally agreed on an extension with Modric that will see him play through the 21/22 season and possibly retire at the end of it, since he will be 37 at the end of the campaign. 

However, considering the player’s fitness and capabilities, it won’t be very surprising to find him continuing to play even after his time at Madrid. 

The Croatian has won almost everything there is to win with a club during his tenure at Real Madrid. Modric arrived from Tottenham Hotspur in 2012 for a fee worth €35 million, and what an investment he has been over the last 8 years!

Modric won the Ballon d’Or in 2018, reaching his peak as a footballer with Real Madrid and the Croatian national team in the process. He has won four Champions League titles, two La Ligas, three Spanish Super Cup trophies and one Spanish Cup with Real Madrid. 

2018 saw him also win FIFA’s The Best Player Award, as well as the UEFA Best Player in Europe award alongside the Ballon d’Or. His contribution to Croatia’s progression to the final of the 2018 World Cup was one of the driving factors behind his recognition. 

Modric has made no secret of wanting to retire at Real Madrid, and 1 and a half years down the line, we could be witnessing that happening.
