The Croatian midfielder is about to sign a new contract and stay at the Bernabeu until the end of June 2023.

According to AS , President Florentino Perez decided to keep Modric for another season in recognition of the 36-year-old midfielder’s contribution. Modric’s current contract runs until the end of June this year. When signing a new contract, Modric’s income decreased by 10% compared to the current one (about 200,000 euros/week – PV) to help Real restructure its salary fund.

Modric wants to stay at the Bernabeu until he retires. On the contrary, coach Carlo Ancelotti needs the long-term service of Modric, because the former Tottenham midfielder is maintaining an amazing physique and form this season.

AS opened a vote for Real fans on whether Modric can keep Real for next season. 99% wishes the former Tottenham star continues to dedicate himself to “White Vultures”.

Since the beginning of the season, Modric has started 14 of 21 matches for Real in La Liga. He made 6 appearances in the Champions League, with 5 starting matches. Modric played nearly 2,000 minutes in all competitions and was averaged 7 points by WhoScored .

Modric contributed 5 assists for Real. The passing performance of midfielder 36 is still different in the “White Vultures” squad. Every game in La Liga, Modric makes 62.1 passes, with an accuracy rate of nearly 90%. He does 1.4 key passes per game.

On January 9, Modric played impressively in Real’s 4-1 win over Valencia. Fans in the four stands of the Bernabeu got up and clapped for Modric as he left the field in the 70th minute.

AS emphasized that the moment Modric received applause and praises at the Bernabeu is a rare occurrence in Real’s history.
