Real Madrid ends the controversy and officially announces the extension of Modric's contract

The Spanish club, Real Madrid, the European champion today, officially extended the contract of its veteran Croatian playmaker Luka Modric until June 2023. The Spanish capital club had renewed the contract of the 36-year-old Modric for one season in the summer of 2021, but his wonderful performances last season and his effective contribution to his team's victory in the local league And the Champions League made the club to renew the contract again for an additional year.

"Real Madrid and Luka Modric have reached an agreement to extend the player's contract until June 23," the Royal Club wrote on its official website.

Thus, Real Madrid was a controversy that had surrounded Modric's fate, especially with the delay in announcing the extension of his contract, with an increasing previous talk about a crisis similar to what happened to its former Spanish captain Sergio Ramos, but Modric had previously confirmed his firm desire to continue with Real, regardless of the number of years. .

And in the context of strengthening its ranks for the next season, Real Madrid confirmed that it had obtained the services of German defender Antonio Rudiger in a free deal after the end of the latter's contract with Chelsea, while it is likely to officially announce the arrival of French midfielder Aurelian Chuamini in the coming days.

Modric, who led his country to the runner-up in the last edition of the World Cup Russia 2018, played 45 games last season and scored three goals.

And the Italian white club coach, Carlo Ancelotti, said last April, "Modric will end his career with Real Madrid. I don't know when, but everyone's opinion. There is no problem for the club or management to extend his contract."

Modric, who won the Ballon d'Or in 2018, joined the royal team in 2012 from Tottenham Hotspur for 35 million euros, and played 436 games with Real, just two games less than the former Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo.
