Luka Modric edging towards Real Madrid exit with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr leading transfer race
LUKA MODRIC could be reunited with Cristiano Ronaldo as he closes in on an exit from Real Madrid.
Al Nassr are reportedly interested in signing the Croatian midfielder should he be made available by Real Madrid.
At 37 years old, Modric is approaching the end of his career and is in the last 18 months of his contract with the LaLiga giants.
According to footmercato, Modric’s representatives have good relations with Al Nassr and its sporting director Goran Vucevic.
The report also suggests Modric would be able to sign a “very big” contract before retiring.
However, it is also said that Madrid will not force the former Tottenham star out of the club if they feel that he is still contributing on the pitch.
There is even talk of a potential extension to his current deal, especially as he is a current first-choice player.
However, the club have been linked with replacements such as Borussia Dortmund
Modric has had an excellent decade at the club – helping them win 22 titles, including five Champions Leagues.
That feat is all the more remarkable as he struggled behind Xabi Alonso and Sami Khedira in the pecking order in his first season at Los Blancos.
Ronaldo is currently enjoying himself at Al Nassr and is in a rich vein of scoring form.
He joined the club after becoming a free agent following his axing from Manchester United.
