Croatian captain Luka Modric left Split’s national team camp on Wednesday and flew to Madrid, where he signed a one-year extension of the club.
The 36-year-old midfielder, who won his 150th cap in Croatia against France on Monday, will stay in Real Madrid at least until the end of next season after signing the extension today.
“I’m very happy to announce that I’ll continue to play for the best clubs in the world. It’s been 10 seasons that my dream of wearing a Real Madrid shirt will come true, but I continue to have the enthusiasm and aspirations of the first day.” Said Modric.
Modric, who led Real to the 14th Europa League this season, has been in the club since joining Tottenham Hotspur for £ 30m in 2012.
“Real Madrid and Luka Modric have agreed to extend the contract of players who remain connected to the club until June 30, 2023,” the club said in a statement.
