Luka Modric has reportedly agreed to extend his contract with the club until the conclusion of the 2022-23 season.
Despite his advanced years, the 36-year-old has remained an essential component of Carlo Ancelotti’s side, scoring three goals and providing nine assists in 39 appearances in all competitions this season.
Modric is set to become a free agent at the conclusion of this season, but Los Blancos have always been anticipated to tie down the Ballon d’Or winner for at least another year.
Modric has now agreed to extend his stay at the Bernabeu for at least another 12 months, with an option to prolong his stay until 2024 dependent on his performance.
The Croatia international may also be given a place in Real Madrid‘s management staff once he hangs up his boots, since he aims to finish his playing career in the Spanish capital.
Modric has 31 goals and 70 assists in 430 games over his ten-year Real Madrid career, winning four Champions Leagues, two La Liga crowns, and one Copa del Rey.
