Following the anticipated renewals of Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Martin Odegaard, Real Madrid will now turn their attention to tying down Luka Modric.
The Croatian midfielder has become an influential figure in the past few seasons at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu but has just two years remaining on his current contract.
All three of the European champions’ recent coaches – Carlo Ancelotti, Rafael Benitez and Zinedine Zidane – have made Modric a focal point of their starting line-ups, therefore the Spanish giants are eager to retain their midfield maestro.
Furthermore, Real president Florentino Perez is keen to safeguard the former Tottenham Hostpur playmaker’s future for several further years, despite him turning 31 on September 9.
Since joining the club from the Premier League outfit in 2012, Modric has made a total of 115 LaLiga appearances for the club, scoring just seven goals in the process.
