Croatian star Luka Modric, a Real Madrid player, is going through an important period in his football history as it is a decisive period that will somehow determine the date of the Croatian player’s departure from Real Madrid.
The Croatian star has a contract with the Merengues, which expires in the summer of June 2024.
Modric decides to leave for the Saudi League
According to the Spanish newspaper Sport: The Croatian has decided to end 12 seasons at the Royal Club and give in to offers from the Saudi League, which amount to millions of dollars.
The newspaper has confirmed that Luka is living out his final months as a Real Madrid player as the Croatian lost his starting spot this season to Jude Bellingham, who has emerged and performed at a high level for the club.
Real Madrid coach Ancelotti still emphasizes his need for the Croatian in the squad and the importance of the Croatian’s role as a team leader among the young players in many of his statements.
Although many statistics show that Luca started in only five matches out of the 17 official matches played by Real Madrid this season.
Injuries confound Modric’s plans for Real Madrid
The newspaper explained that the decision to leave the Croatian in January would be very difficult and would be rejected by the royal administration due to the large number of injuries in the ranks of the first football team of the Royal Club, where injuries have affected 9 players of the team so far.
This was recently confirmed by Real Madrid general manager Jose Angel Sanchez: “We have no open discussions with the Saudi League regarding a possible departure in January and we have no intention of selling him at this time.
The newspaper quoted Ben Jacobs, the player’s agent, as saying: “There was indeed interest from Saudi Arabia last summer.” The player has several offers from a club in Riyadh and another team. But Modric is now thinking about Real Madrid and the idea of him moving to the Saudi League is possible if the offer is right.”
