Following Karim Benzema, Luka Modric is another Real Madrid player that could leave in this summer to join Al-Hilal. The veteran midfielder was widely anticipated to extend his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu early this year. However, the renewal has not yet occurred. Hence Saudi Arabian clubs have the opportunity to make an effort to convince Modric for moving to the Middle East. After Lionel Messi’s rejection, Saudi Arabian giants Al-Hilal have turned their attention to Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric.
Al-Hilal offers a lucrative deal to Real Madrid legend Luka Modric
According to The Guardian, Al-Hilal decided to make the 37-year-old midfield legend their top priority after Messi chose Inter Miami. They also intend to offer the Real Madrid stalwart a massive two-year contract worth £60 million per season. According to MARCA journalist Ramon Alvarez de Mon, Real Madrid legend Luka Modric is considering quitting the club this summer after receiving a large contract offer from Saudi Arabia.
Modric’s current Real Madrid contract, like Benzema’s, expires on June 30. However, according to numerous reports, the 37-year-old midfielder will agree to a one-year extension with the Merengues and appeared to be ready to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu. Indeed, it was previously stated that Modric turned down offers from Saudi Arabia and Qatar in order to extend his tenure with the Spanish capital club. However, that may be about to change as the Croatian international is thinking about signing a two-year contract with Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal.
Al-Hilal are planning a new attempt at the Merengues star in order to sign Modric. The Saudi Arabian giants are willing to offer the Croatian international a two-year contract worth £120 million. Despite being 37 years old, Modric remains an important part of Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid plan. In 2022/23, he appeared in 52 games across all competitions, contributing six goals and six assists.
Luka Modric might announce his decision soon
However, with the arrival of Jude Bellingham and the contract extension of Dani Ceballos, Modric’s role in the upcoming season may be jeopardised. Modric is exploring a move away from the Bernabeu after receiving a tempting offer from Saudi Arabia.
According to the source, the Croatian international is going to make an announcement on his future soon. He will, in fact, make a decision in the coming days, possibly after considering the pros and cons of departing for Saudi Arabia. As things currently stand, Modric’s future at Real Madrid is uncertain, and he may leave the club before the summer. For all parties engaged in this transfer saga, the following few days might be critical and tense.
