Real Madrid’s dilemma in handing out Luka Modric a contract renewal has been a hot topic of discussion lately, with the Croatian past his peak years.

However, after much speculation and doubt, it appears the veteran midfield will continue to grace the Real Madrid jersey for one more season after all, particularly with Modric’s agent confirming a renewal is in sight.

Modric will stay in Madrid

Indeed, according to AS (h/t Madrid Xtra) Luka Modric will be a Real Madrid player next season, claiming that his continuity is 100% confirmed.

The agreement between the player and the club is fully settled, and it is only a matter of formalities before the new contract is signed and announced to the public.

Despite seeing a reduced role this season, as coach Carlo Ancelotti has availed younger midfielders in the starting XI, Modric’s impactful cameos and presence in the dressing room continue to render him a unique asset.

The previous few months have particularly seen the Croatian chime in with some incredible displays, which was not always the case earlier in the campaign.

Another important advantage of Modric’s continued presence is that the young midfielders will benefit from his tutelage.

His mentorship will be invaluable in nurturing the next generation of talent, making the passing of the guard a seamless process.

Moreover, the Ballon d’Or winner has constantly emphasized his desire to continue playing in the Spanish capital, which is a wish Real Madrid intends to respect given his past services to the club.

The new agreement shows the mutual commitment of both sides. His background as a serial winner and experience on the pitch will come in very handy as the team looks to win additional titles in the foreseeable future.

Real Madrid are looking for defensive reinforcements in the summer amid question marks over the continuity of captain Nacho Fernandez.

Leny Yoro of Lille has been the top target, with the teenager’s contract with the French club expiring in a year.

However, Lille’s transfer demands are making the possibility of a transfer difficult, which has seemingly prompted Los Blancos to look for alternatives.

Cristian Romero on the radars

Now, ESPN Argentina reports that Real Madrid are interested in Tottenham Hotspur defender and vice-captain Cristian Romero heading into the summer.

In fact, it is even claimed that the reigning champions of Spain and Europe have already asked about the 25-year-old World Cup winner.

Romero has been with Tottenham since 2021, having initially arrived on loan from Atalanta before the move was made permanent a year later.

The 25-year-old has been a regular fixture in the lineup for the Lilywhites and was even made vice-captain last season by manager Ange Postecoglou.

The centre-half was also a part of the Argentina squad that won the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

Romero’s contract with Tottenham runs until the summer of 2027. Considering how important he is to the team and the duration of his contract, Spurs will demand a hefty sum for him if Real Madrid do make an approach.

Given the Merengues’ reluctance to splash big bucks especially with funds being set aside for Alphonso Davies as well, any move for Romero this summer appears extremely unlikely.
