After the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, football teams in the Middle East seem determined to add the heavyweights of the game and the recent names to be linked are that of veteran Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric and former captain Sergio Ramos.

However, if what Josep Pedrerol (h/t Bernabeu Digital) has said is true, then Real Madrid fans can see their midfield magician for another season as the team from the Spanish capital are keen on renewing Modric’s contract.

At this moment, however, nothing is concrete. That is mostly because while the aforementioned is only a message from the club, the final decision stands with the midfielder himself.

For now, Modric has shown that he still has a lot of football left in his tank and this was made evident by his performances for Croatia at the World Cup. His returns for Real Madrid have not diminished either and this has led to the suggestion that he could very well continue for another year.

As reported before, Modric is keen on playing for Madrid, at least for another season so the only thing that remains is to finalise an agreement and get the paperwork done. And for that, he has already rejected a big-money offer from Al Nassr from Saudi Arabia and approaches from the Major League Soccer (MLS).

Real Madrid, for their part, are delighted that the player wishes to continue for another year. But for now, the Los Blancos are yet to present a formal offer.

In any way, however, it is not going to be an issue in the first place as everyone wants the same thing, and that is to continue.

On a personal level, Modric feels absolutely at home, both in terms of his professional life and his personal day-to-day activities. He feels respected and loved at Madrid and he wants it to continue.

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.
