After a hard-fought 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund at Wembley, Real Madrid are currently in celebration mode as they are now not only champions of Spain but also Europe.

While the win did see Real Madrid seal the Champions League for a record 15th time, it was also a bittersweet moment for fans, as Toni Kroos and Nacho Fernandez bid their farewell.

Fortunately for the fans, not all Real Madrid veterans are set to leave the Bernabeu this coming summer, as everything suggests Luka Modric will continue for another year.

Before the game, it was reported that the Croatian international had accepted a new offer from Real Madrid and would remain at Bernabeu for another season.

Romano suggests Modric is all set to sign a one-year deal next week. The player is expected to meet with President Florentino Perez soon, where he will pen a new contract and Real Madrid will subsequently announce the deal.

A member of the Real Madrid first-team since 2012, Modric is considered a living legend at Bernabeu, having featured in 534 competitive matches for the club. Last night’s triumph marked his sixth UCL victory with Los Blancos.

How Modric’s stay can impact Real Madrid

With Toni Kroos departing this summer, Modric’s prolonged stay at Real Madrid could prove to be very important as the club look to smoothen the transition.

Although young midfielders such as Jude Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni and Fede Valverde have done an excellent job, they do require guidance from an experienced figure such as Modric.

The Croat’s experience and leadership could go a long way in marshalling an otherwise young Real Madrid midfield unit.

Real Madrid face Premier League, Saudi Arabia competition for free transfer target

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
