Luka Modric’s contract with Real Madrid has been extended until June 2022, the club announced on Tuesday.
The move will keep the 35-year-old Croatian midfielder at the club for a decade. He joined the Spanish power plant from Tottenham in 2012.
Madrid failed to win a title for the first time since the 2009-10 season. It finished two points away from city rivals Atletico Madrid in the Spanish league and was eliminated by Chelsea in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
It remains unclear whether Zinedine Zidane will remain as Madrid’s coach for next season. He said he would discuss his future with the club.
