Real Madrid legend growing uncomfortable with his contract situation

Luka Modric’s patience with Real Madrid is said to be wearing thin, with a report from GOAL mentioning that the Croatian is now growing uncomfortable with his contract situation after having waited for months to get an update.

Modric, 37, is one of the many Real Madrid players whose ongoing deal runs out at the end of the season. Until the date of writing, there have been no movements from Madrid’s front in that regard, which has started to worry the veteran midfielder.

As far as the player is concerned, he has time and again mentioned that he wants to continue with Los Blancos, at least for another year, and for that, he has been putting in top performances.

“My wish is known, to stay at Real Madrid. I believe and hope it will happen. The rest are only assumptions and rumours. I repeat for the 100th time, I hope and believe I will stay at Real Madrid,” the midfielder said while on international duty with Croatia recently.

Despite his constant availability at the age of 37, he has been left waiting for months by the team, which has put him in a very uncomfortable situation.

The midfielder’s concern comes on the back of Real Madrid’s history of dealing with contract renewals. He is of the idea that the management has never handled contract extensions like this and if it continues, he will be forced to become a free agent at the end of the season.

From the team’s perspective, they are currently studying all the scenarios while factoring in his age and status at the club before they can come up with an offer.

It is being said that Real Madrid were not happy that Modric decided to continue playing for Croatia after the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

As it turns out, the 37-year-old is in no mood to retire and does, in fact, want to feature at the UEFA Euro 2024. If that is, indeed, the case, it will be interesting to see how the team approaches the extension.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
