1 Min Read

Luka Modric has agreed to extend his trophy-laden Real Madrid stay to over a decade by signing a one-year contract extension.

The European and La Liga champions on Wednesday confirmed that Modric will remain at the Santiago Bernabeu for another season.

Modric joined Los Blancos from Tottenham in August 2012 and has made over 400 appearances for the club.

The 36-year-old midfielder pulled the strings as Carlo Ancelotti’s side completed a UEFA Champions League and Spanish LaLiga double in a glorious 2021/2022 season.

Modric has won the Champions League five times, the La Liga titles three times, and lifted the FIFA Club World Cup on four occasions.

The Croatia captain also won the Copa del Rey once during his long spell in the Spanish capital.

He also has three European Super Cup winners’ medals and has celebrated Supercopa de Espana success four times.
