Real Madrid have a number of players whose contracts stand to expire at the end of the season, one of whom happens to be Luka Modric.

The 38-year-old veteran midfielder has been at the club for over a decade now and has been one of the most important cogs in the success that Los Blancos have achieved during this period.

Modric was in a similar situation with regard to his contract last year as well, but ended up signing a new deal, turning down a lucrative offer from the Middle East.

Modric expected to leave

However, the situation is likely to end differently this time around as journalist Hugo Cerezo (h/t Madrid Xtra) is reporting that Modric will be leaving Real Madrid when his contract expires.

The 38-year-old renewed last summer with the hope that he will continue to have prominence in the first team. But that is not how things have gone as Carlo Ancelotti has been slowly transitioning him out of the picture and utilising the younger breed more regularly.

Modric has previously admitted to not being entirely happy about this unfamiliar situation and it appears that he might decide to pack his bags and call it time on his career at the Santiago Bernabeu come the end of the season.

There are takers for him in Saudi Arabia while a potential union with Lionel Messi at Inter Miami has been speculated as well.

So, with no lack of options for the Croatian international, it will be interesting to see the decision he takes.

According to a recent report from Defensa Central, Manchester United have set their sights on Real Madrid forward Joselu and for that, they are prepared to make a generous offer to lure him, proposing a two-year contract with an impressive salary of €5 million net per year.

Manchester United’s interest in signing Joselu has grown in recent months. His reputation has been on the rise, and United are willing to go all out to secure his signature. 

At Real Madrid, the forward’s exceptional performance, particularly his two crucial goals in the European Cup semi-final against Bayern Munich, has made a significant impression. 

It is said that this performance highlighted the importance of keeping a strong squad, and Joselu’s contributions have not gone unnoticed.

Real Madrid can sign him

While Joselu is currently committed to Espanyol until June 2024, Real Madrid hold a potential purchase option for him

The cost of this option is relatively low, but it is important to note that Real Madrid’s roster is quite full, with limited space for new players. 

Despite this, Joselu’s previous stint in the Premier League has not been forgotten, and Manchester United remains keenly interested in bringing him back to England.

Joselu is an old-school forward who knows what it means to face some of the toughest defences in the world. He understands the challenges and the battles that come with playing at the highest level. 

United love Joselu

Even if he is not guaranteed a starting position, his experience and knack for scoring goals make him a valuable addition to any team. 

Manchester United see these qualities in Joselu and believes he could be a significant asset to their squad.

In England, there is talk of a lucrative two-year contract on the table for the Galician footballer. This deal would significantly boost Joselu’s salary, offering him €5 million net per year. 

This substantial increase in his earnings is a key part of United’s strategy to tempt him away from Real Madrid’s Valdebebas training complex.

Carlo Ancelotti and his staff are very pleased with Joselu’s performance as he has proven to be more than just a team player, but there is a chance that they might still lose him this summer.
