A recent report from MARCA has offered a comprehensive update on Luka Modric. With his contract at Real Madrid expiring at the end of the season, there are speculations floating around over the future of the Croatian international, who recently guided his nation to a third-placed finish in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The report suggests Modric has received two lucrative offers from Saudi Arabia and MLS respectively. The offer from Saudi, in particular, has come from Al Nassr, who have recently made headlines by signing none other than Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Saudi Arabian giants now want to take things one step further by adding more star players to their armoury. It appears Al Nassr are determined to become the Real Madrid of Arab football, as evidenced by their recent capture of Ronaldo.

Al Nassr have identified two top targets in the market currently. One is Sergio Ramos, who could join the club at the end of the season, while the other is Modric. They have approached the veteran midfielder, but the player has rejected any advances.

The former Tottenham starlet has received offers from MLS too, especially ahead of the 2026 FIFA World Cup. But his response has been clear: “We will talk in 2024”.

Modric’s response serves as a clear indication of his desire to continue at Real Madrid, at least for another season. Even at the age of 37, the Croatian has continued to thrive in his role and remains a star player for the team.

Real Madrid, too, consider Modric as a vital part of the squad, even amid speculation over the potential capture of Jude Bellingham in the summer of 2023.

The Whites may not have tabled an official proposal just yet, but Modric is prepared to sign a contract extension. Reaching an agreement should not be a problem for either of the two parties, as we enter the January transfer window.

A recent report from Mundo Deportivo has revealed that Lille have turned down a €50 million offer from Liverpool for Leny Yoro, a young player who is also a target for Real Madrid.

Yoro, who is just 18 years old, has caught the attention of several major European clubs during this summer’s transfer window. 

Among these clubs are Liverpool, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain, all eager to sign the talented centre-back from Lille. However, they are all competing with Real Madrid, who are also very interested in Yoro.

According to sources in England, Lille recently rejected Liverpool’s offer of €50 million for the player. 

While this amount is close to what Lille have been asking for, they have set a price tag of €60 million and are in no mood to lower their demands.

The main challenge for clubs interested in Yoro is that many believe he has already decided to join Real Madrid

Despite this, Real Madrid have not made a formal move to negotiate with Lille, as they are unwilling to meet the €60 million asking price.

In the meantime, other clubs hoping to sign Yoro are relying on the chance that he might reconsider and choose a different team over Real Madrid. 

Liverpool, in particular, have been doubtful about their chances of securing Yoro, mainly because of Real Madrid’s interest.

Yoro wants Real Madrid

Discussions about Yoro have been widespread recently, with many suggesting that the player is aware of Real Madrid’s interest and is waiting for them to prioritise his transfer. 

However, the main sticking point remains Lille’s demand and Real Madrid, knowing that Yoro’s contract expires in the summer of 2025, are not willing to pay that much.

Given that Yoro has only one year left on his contract after this summer, Real Madrid are reluctant to enter a bidding war and pay more than they think is reasonable. 

Reports indicate that Real Madrid are not prepared to offer more than €30 million for the player.
