Luka Modric Rejects Contract from Saudi Arabia, Extends Cooperation with Real Madrid

Croatian football sensation, Luka Modrić, has made a significant decision in his footballing career. The 37-year-old midfielder has rejected a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabian football club, opting to extend his cooperation with Real Madrid for another year.

Refusal of Saudi Arabian Contract

According to Spanish media outlet, Relevo, Modrić was offered a contract worth 40 million euros per season from a Saudi Arabian football club. However, the Croatian international refused to consider the offer, choosing to focus on negotiations with Real Madrid instead.

Relevo states, "The terms have been agreed and the contracts have been drawn up and approved by both parties."

Modric's Loyalty to Real Madrid

Modrić has been with Real Madrid since 2012, following a transfer from Tottenham worth 35 million euros.

Throughout his time at the club, he has made 480 appearances, scoring 37 goals and providing 77 assists. With a vast list of achievements, including five Champions League trophies, three Spanish championship titles, and four UEFA Super Cups, it is no surprise that the Croatian midfielder is eager to continue his association with Real Madrid.

In March of this year, Modrić dispelled rumours that he could join former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia, stating, "I hope and believe I will stay at Real Madrid." It is reported that he had a meeting with club president, Florentino Perez, last month, in which Perez "assured him the club would offer him a new contract."

Modrić's Dreams of Continuing with Real Madrid

Modrić has officially agreed to extend his cooperation with Real Madrid, and the announcement will be made following the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Manchester City.

According to reports, Modrić is determined to stay in Madrid, with his dream being to play for Real Madrid for as long as possible and for as long as his body allows. He is said to have made no demands regarding financial requirements and has not created any problems in the negotiations.

Luka Modrić's decision to reject a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia and extend his cooperation with Real Madrid is a testament to his loyalty and love for the club. At 38 years old, the Croatian midfielder is showing no signs of slowing down, and Real Madrid fans will be delighted to see him continue his association with the club.
