Real Madrid have made the decision to move to the Saudi Arabian League with three teams, notably Al Nasr, Al Hilal and Al Ittihad Jeddah in the upcoming summer transfer period.
The Saudi League aims to include stars from Europe to create strong competition in the near future, especially after Cristiano Ronaldo joined Saudi Arabia’s two-and-a-half-year win.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has revealed the three teams’ positions on contract extensions following the Saudi league’s temptations.

Ancelotti said at a press conference ahead of tomorrow’s league game against Villarreal: “Kroos and Modric’s contract extensions? It’s okay, the club is discussing it to keep them for another year.
And he continued: “Do you think Kroos, Modric and Benzema will stay? I think so, but the day they stop something will change, we have great guys like Choameni, Valverde, Camavinga and Ceballos, it will be a different era at the club.
This morning, several reports have confirmed that Real Madrid, led by Florentino Pérez, will extend the trio’s contract for another year due to their importance in the meringue ranks.
It is worth noting that Al-Nasr Saudi Arabia wanted to include Luka Modric for 30 million euros in order to strongly strengthen their ranks.
Other reports indicated that Al-Ittihad Jeddah wanted to sign Karim Benzema, while Kroos received interest from Al-Hilal.
The contracts of Kroos, Benzema and Modric expire in the summer of 2023.
