Modric: Real Madrid means everything to me

Luka Modric faces a big decision over his future at Real Madrid in 2024.

Modric’s status as a Los Blancos icon has already been established with the Croatian winning five Champions Leagues and three La Liga titles in his time at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 38-year-old decided to continue his pattern of signing 12-month contract extensions ahead of the 2023/24 season as he looks to extend his career with Los Blancos.

However, his playing time has dwindled more than expected in recent weeks, despite Carlo Ancelotti’s insistence that he remains crucial to his squad rotation plans in the Spanish capital.

Modric’s agent Borja Couce has hinted his client could be tempted by a January move to Saudi Arabia after rejecting a summer move to the Middle East, but the veteran midfielder is undecided.

After being honored by the club after making his 500th appearance for Los Blancos this month, Modric has been unfazed by rumors that he wants to leave.

“I want to thank the fans of Real Madrid for their support during all these matches. I will continue to give everything for Madrid. Real Madrid is everything to me”, Modric first told Diario AS.

“It is part of my life, my family and it is a way of life. I’m from Croatia and I was born there, but I’ve been here for eleven years and I feel at home.”

“Achieving 500 games here fills me with pride, but the appreciation of the fans, who have always been with me, has been the most important thing,” concluded the Croatian.
