The European champions said on Wednesday, Luca Modric has signed a new agreement to keep him at Real Madrid until the end of next season.

The midfielder, who turns 37 in September, played a crucial role in Carlo Ancelotti’s team last term as they triumphed the La Liga and Champions League titles.

“Real Madrid C. F. and Luka Modric have reached an agreement to extend the player’s contract until 30 June 2023,” the club stated in a statement.

He joined Real Madrid from Tottenham in 2012 and has gone on to make 436 features for the Spanish giants, triumphing the Champions League 5 times and 3 La Liga titles.

“Modric is going to end his career with Real Madrid,” Real coach Ancelotti stated.

“I don’t know when, but that’s everyone’s idea. There’s no problem for the club or the management to extend his contract, that’s clear.”

Modric has continued to regularly begin in midfield apace with fellow teammates Casemiro and Toni Kroos.

Eduardo Camavinga has galvanized in his first season, often as a substitute, whilst Madrid have reputedly concurred a deal to sign his fellow French youngster Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco.

However, Modric was never anticipated to follow long-time teammates Isco, Gareth Bale and Marcelo out of the door at the Santiago Bernabeu.
