Luka Modric, who will turn 36 in September, is still an important player for Real Madrid. Since joining Tottenham in 2012, the midfield maestro has been a standout performer in the Spanish capital, and he remains one of the league’s most consistent performers.
Now, according to Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the Croat has agreed to a new contract with Los Blancos, which has been in effect since January, and all that is lacking is a formal announcement.
The extension of Luka Modric’s contract with Real Madrid is done and it’s not in question. The agreement has been in place since January for one more year of contract. It's just a matter of time for the official announcement. Modric is definitely staying. ⚪️ #RealMadrid https://t.co/RR5K9F1pJp

The midfield maestro’s fine form and contribution to the club’s recent good run of results have dominated recent Real Madrid headlines – he has played in 34 games this season.
Modric is one of three first-team players out of contract this summer, along with club captain Sergio Ramos and utility player Lucas Vazquez, but none of them is believed to have reached an agreement.
The 2018 Ballon d’Or winner’s current contract with Los Blancos is set to expire this summer, but he has agreed to extend it for another year.
