Luka Modric’s agent, Vladica Lemic, has stated that the experienced midfielder is likely to stay at Real Madrid as he considers the club his home. 

Just a week ago, Lemic had admitted that nothing was certain, but recent conversations between the parties involved have brought significant changes.

“The most likely thing is that he will stay one more year and continue writing history,” said the footballer’s agent as quoted by MARCA.

“Real Madrid is the best club in the world and is led by the best president in the history of football. 

“Modric is a Real Madrid fan who loves the club and considers it his home,” he added.

Modric’s future has been uncertain for a long time, but as the UEFA Champions League final approaches, reports indicate that Real Madrid are considering offering him and Toni Kroos new contracts

A few days ago, the club had not made any moves regarding the continuity of Modric or Kroos, but that has now changed. Interestingly, Real Madrid have begun working on renewing both players’ contracts, and progress is already visible, especially in Modric’s case.

Modric is adapting to a new role

However, he has adapted well to his new role and is far from being a fringe player. He has played 43 games so far, won his 25th career title by clinching La Liga, and has the chance to become a Champions League champion for the sixth time.

New Real Madrid captain?

It is to be noted that in September, Modric will turn 39. If he accepts Real Madrid’s offer, he will continue playing for Madrid, potentially setting new records and possibly taking over the captain’s armband. 

This is because the current captain, Nacho, is set to leave the club in the summer, opening up this leadership role.

Modric’s potential new contract would allow him to extend his illustrious career at Real Madrid, where he has been a key player for many years. 

Despite his advancing age, his experience and skills remain valuable to the team. The decision now rests with Modric, who will have the opportunity to continue contributing to one of the world’s most prestigious football clubs.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
