Luka Modric has officially accepted a one-year deal renewal with Real Madrid, keeping him in the team through at least the summertime of 2023. Modric will approach 37 in September, and this potentially might be his final season at Real Madrid.
The playmaker was an uncontested squad player for Carlo Ancelotti last season, and although he will resume that involvement in the 2022-2023 season, it will be incredibly hard for the playmaker to maintain consistency in how this will be an aggressive year of football due to the 2022 FIFA World Cup also being held in the cold season.
Modric is a club veteran who should retire with the white jersey on his body. With the addition of talented youngsters like Camavinga and Valverde, as well as the upcoming acquisition of Tchouameni, Ancelotti and his training staff will be able to rest Modric more routinely, which may help his efficiency and longevity.
Modric joined Los Blancos from Tottenham Hotspur in August 2012 and has played over 400 times for the club since then. The 36-year-old midfielder was instrumental in Carlo Ancelotti’s side winning the Champions League and LaLiga double in 2021-22. Modric has won the Champions League five times, three LaLiga titles, the Club World Cup four times, and the Copa del Rey once during his stay in the Spanish capital.
In addition, the Croatian captain has three European Super Cup champions medals and four Supercopa de Espana victories. Modric, who made his 150th appearance for Croatia in Monday’s 1-1 Nations League draw with France, will be looking for further accolades in the next season after signing a new deal.
