Ever since signing for Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur in 2012, Luka Modric has been an integral part of the Madrid-based outfit. He has gone on to win four Champions League titles with the Los Blancos and has also won three league titles. Modric could add yet another Champions League winner’s medal to his list if Real Madrid beat Liverpool in the upcoming final on May 29th.
Along with Toni Kroos and Casemiro, Modric forms one of the most legendary midfield tridents the game has ever seen. The trio is known for its tactical intelligence, hard work, and ability to dictate games. Modric is an element of the trident, and also a very important aspect of Madrid’s recent domination in Europe.
With his contract set to expire at the end of the season, there were rumors going on about where the Croat would be playing next season. But according to reports, the 2018 World Cup finalist is going nowhere, and is set to sign a new deal that will keep him in Madrid for the 2022/23 season.
