Luka Modric has signed a new one-year deal at Real Madrid, which will keep him at the Spanish giants until the end of next season.
The fresh deal has ensured that the Croatian will complete a decade of service at the Santiago Bernabeu.
During his time in Madrid, the 35-year-old has won 13 major trophies and claimed the Ballon d’Or in 2o18 after an excellent season for both club and country.
Modric took to Twitter to express his delight at signing a new deal:
“Happy and proud to continue wearing the jersey of the best team in the world. #HalaMadrid.”
Lifting four Champions League trophies for Real, Modric has been instrumental in midfield alongside Toni Kroos and Casemiro.
However, teammate Dani Ceballos will be looking to push Modric for his place in the side as he returns from his two-year loan spell at Arsenal.
With manager Zinedine Zidane‘s future hanging in the balance, it is unclear what the future holds for Ceballos.
