Luka Modrić has made the decision to extend his contract with Real Madrid until the season's end, signaling a potential conclusion to his fairy tale tenure at the club. In the past summer, Al Ahli and Al Ittihad expressed interest in acquiring Modrić's services.
The winter transfer window promises to be eventful as Saudi Arabian clubs aim once more to secure Luka Modrić. According to Rudy Galleti, a journalist known for breaking exclusive Saudi Arabian football news, Al Ahli is gearing up to make another bid for Modrić's signature.
Simultaneously, Al Ittihad also eyes the Croatian midfielder for a January move. Galleti suggests both clubs will directly approach Modrić and then engage with Real Madrid should the player express interest. Borja Couca, Modrić's manager, recently addressed the media from Saudi Arabia, highlighting ongoing interest in Modrić with two active offers on the table.
While Modrić contemplates his future with Real Madrid, the notion of a move to Saudi Arabia remains a possibility, as indicated by Couca. Notably, several high-profile stars such as Firmino, Mahrez, Mendy, Benzema, and Fabinho have already made transitions to the aforementioned Saudi clubs, hinting at the growing allure of these teams in the football landscape.
Luka Modrić joined Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur back in 2012. At first, his start at the club didn't win over fans, and there were calls for the club to part ways with him. However, Modrić's perseverance paid off, and he eventually became an important player for the team and one of the world's top players.
His tenure saw him capture an impressive five Champions League trophies, three La Liga titles, and four Spanish Super Cups. A move to Saudi Arabia could mean significant financial gains for Modrić. The allure of a hefty paycheck might be quite compelling for him.
It would offer not just financial security but also the prospect of a new adventure, presenting a fresh challenge in his illustrious career.
