Luka Modric Poised to Depart Real Madrid with Multiple Offers on the Table
Luka Modric is anticipated to part ways with Real Madrid next summer as his contract is set to expire, as per recent reports. The Croatian midfielder, who joined Los Blancos from Tottenham in 2012, has evolved from being labeled La Liga’s ‘worst signing’ to becoming a key figure in the team’s midfield, earning a Ballon d’Or in 2018 and contributing to five Champions League triumphs. However, at 38, Modric’s playing time has been limited this La Liga season, with emerging talents like Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga taking on more significant roles.
According to Sport, Modric’s tenure at Real Madrid is approaching its conclusion, with the club planning for the next season without the legendary midfielder. The report suggests that Modric’s role is diminishing, partly due to the rise of new talents and the resurgence of players like Dani Ceballos. Despite this, manager Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly keen on retaining Modric until the end of the season, valuing his experience, particularly in light of current injuries within the Real Madrid squad.
In a recent interview with Shooot, Modric’s agent revealed that the player had received offers, including from the Saudi Pro League, during the summer transfer window. The possibility of a move to the Saudi Pro League remains open, contingent on receiving a suitable offer, despite Modric’s current focus on Real Madrid.
