Luka Modrić has signed a one year contract extension with Real Madrid. The Croatian midfielder will get to aid his team fight for trophies for one more season. He will also get the opportunity to grace the new Bernabeu pitch as it’s expected to be finished by December 2022. This is also vital for Real Madrid’s future as he will guide the next generation of midfielders on and off the pitch. According to reports, Modrić only took three (3) minutes to renew his contract.
Modric’s Influence this Season
This season, Modrić has scored three (3) goals and assisted twelve (12). Though stats don’t tell the full story with this magician, he still put up impressive numbers. Press resistance, passing range, skill, technique and flair are all components of his game that was showcased this season. His persistence through adversity and ability to lead his team forward by his actions are also factors that show his quality. His marauding run against PSG is one example of his footballing intelligence and ability and what he will bring to Real Madrid next season.
What will he bring off the pitch?
Luka “Lukita” Modrić is like a father to every person in the dressing room. He has a strong and genuine friendship with each player and member of staff. He unites the dressing room in times of doubt and he helps in remaining humble when there’s great success. The younger generation look up to him and with Tchouameni joining next season, he’ll be eager to help the young Frenchman grow.
This is a step in the right direction for Los Blancos who have also signed Tchouameni and Rudiger. Keep an eye out for more movement in the market from the Champions League winners.
