Luka Modric is staying at Madrid for one more year.

Luka Modric signs new 1 year deal with Real Madrid

Real Madrid has officially confirmed the renewal of Luka Modric’s contract. The Croatian midfielder will be with the club until at least the summer of 2024. Modric will turn 38 in September, so this might be his final deal with Real Madrid.

Los Blancos now have a total of seven midfielders on their squad. Tchouameni, Camavinga, Valverde, Kroos, Modric, Ceballos, and Bellingham will all compete for minutes, so it’ll be intriguing to see how coach Carlo Ancelotti handles his team in the coming weeks. Who will take part in the mega games? Will Ancelotti continue to rely on his veterans while benching his young players against elite opponents?

Modric will very certainly accept whatever job is assigned to him. He performed admirably last season, and while he is no longer the consistent performer he once was, he may still be a valuable asset.

Luka Modric pens new Los Blancos Contract

The 37-year-old Croatia international moved to Madrid in 2012 and has won 23 titles in 11 years at the Bernabeu.

Luka Modric has stated publicly and privately that he wanted to continue at Real Madrid. He made the decision despite heavy interest from Saudi Arabia in recent weeks casting doubt on his future.

Toni Kroos, Jude Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, Federico Valverde, and Dan Ceballos are all expected to contend with Modric for a starting slot in Real Madrid’s starting lineup next season.

Last season, Modric made 33 LaLiga appearances as well as 10 Champions League appearances, starting all six of Madrid’s knockout stage matches on their way to the semifinals.

Carlo Ancelotti, the manager of Real Madrid, has stated that senior players Modric and Kroos would play less minutes next season, with a greater role for youngsters Tchouameni, Camavinga, and now Bellingham.

Modric overcame early misgivings after joining Real Madrid from Tottenham in 2012 to become one of the club’s most significant players over the previous decade, playing a major role in the club’s five Champions League triumphs in 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2022.

Only Marcelo and Karim Benzema have won more titles in club history than Modric’s 23.
