• Modric history, a broken roof, Croatia and the goals of his children at the Bernabéu

On September 9,

Luka Modric

(Zadar, 1985) will celebrate his 37th birthday in the sports city of

Valdebebas

, the tenth in a row wearing the

Real Madrid

shirt , which today announced the renewal of the Croat's contract until June

30, 2023

.

It was an open secret for months and it only remained to wait for the end of the season to make it official.

The

one-year extension

of Chamartín's '10' contract has materialized after a sensational season, one of the best in Modric's career.

He has appeared in

45 games

and has racked up

three goals and twelve assists

, the latter being his best assists since his last season at

Dinamo Zagreb

.

Modric went to Valdebebas this Wednesday morning to stamp his signature on the contract and to be photographed with

Florentino Pérez

before returning to the concentration of his team, which played against

France

on Monday and this Friday faces

Denmark

in a key game for the future of the Balkan team in the

UEFA Nations League

.

This Friday will be Modric's penultimate match of the season, which will put the

finishing touch

on next Monday, again against France.

There he will face

Karim Benzema

again , a partner on a dream trip to the

League, the Champions League

(his fifth

orejona

of his) and the

European Super Cup

.

In all three titles the Croatian has been essential.

In the domestic championship he has added

28 games

, 25 of them as a starter, has scored two goals and has distributed eight assists.

In the European Cup, he has been the axis of the comebacks against

PSG

,

Chelsea

and

City

, giving three goal passes in the qualifiers.

In the

Arabian Super Cup

, for his part, he scored the winning goal in the final against

Athletic

.

In total, at

36 years old

, he was the sixth outfield player with the most minutes (3,435), behind

Militao, Vinicius, Alaba, Benzema and Casemiro

.

A statistical barbarity that has convinced (in case it was necessary) Madrid to extend its agreement with a footballer who is already a legend at the

Santiago Bernabéu

.

"

Very happy

to continue at Real Madrid and continue wearing this shirt. I have the

same enthusiasm and desire

to continue giving everything and winning trophies. Thank you very much for your love and Hala Madrid", declared the player.
