Modric, Militao, Vinícius among players that will stay in Real Madrid

Real Madrid visits Manchester City for the Semifinals of the Champions League.

Florentino Perez has a concrete strategy for players who might continue and players who might depart. Luka Modric is set to finalise a new agreement with Real Madrid, bringing an end to speculation regarding whether he will leave the Bernabeu this year. The Croatian inked a one-year agreement with Real the year before, but following weeks of discussions between the player’s agents and the team, an agreement for the next season is still to be finalized.

Now, Real Madrid and Luka Modric have signed an agreement till 2023, as per Fabrizio Romano. Modric, 36, is among the most celebrated footballers of the last decade, having achieved the Champions League 4 times, 2 La Liga crowns, and a Copa del Rey for Real Madrid. He is reaching 450 outings for the team and seems poised to exceed that total with his deal renewal.


Modric also received the prestigious Ballon d’Or in 2018 after directing unfancied Croatia to their first-ever World Cup final participation, and he maintains to play at a phenomenally top standard although being at the end of his era.

As per Fabrizio Romano’s recent statement, Real Madrid has planned a proposal to prolong Eder Militao’s agreement and will offer it to the Brazilian centre-back in the following weeks. Militao, although a recent drop in form, is well-deserving of the contract and has been a fantastic addition to the team. Providing him trust at the close of the year to stay feels like a crucial component, as Militao can be a leader for many years.

Over the off-season, Vinicius will ink a contract renewal with Real Madrid. The attacker has consented to a five-year contract extension with Los Blancos till 2027. Madrid and Vinicius have still yet to make a final settlement on the player’s pay rate, but all sides engaged anticipate that it will be a question of time once they officially begin negotiations straight after the season’s finish, considering that the player loves at home in Madrid. Asensio is in the process of negotiating a renewed deal, although it is still in the early stages courtesy of Fabrizio Romano.

The reigning champions of England and Spain are slated to play off in the Champions League semi-finals, as Manchester City prepares to host Real Madrid at Etihad Stadium. The two squads will strive to place them in a solid spot to make it to the final in Paris next month during the first leg on Tuesday, before the return fixture on May 4 at Madrid.

Following 33 games, Real Madrid tops the La Liga standings. Carlo Ancelotti’s men are 15 points clear of second-placed Barcelona, that have a match in hand and should prevail to clinch their second league crown in three years.
