Luka Modric is eager to extend his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu and plans to reach a decision on his future at the end of this season.

Real Madrid’s Luka Modric has been a key cog in the team ever since his arrival from the Premier League in the summer of 2013.

The midfield maestro has enjoyed immense success at both collective and individual level with the club so far, winning a total of 16 major trophies, a Ballon dOr, and a Best FIFA Men’s Player award.

As things stand, however, his time at the Spanish capital will come to an end the next year as his contract runs through to the summer of 2021.

There has been reports that Los Blancos are planning a one-year contract extension for the Croatian.

An ageing Modric does not enjoy the same amount of minutes as he used to but he still is a reliable and valuable weapon in Zinedine Zidane‘s armory, and he wants to remain so for some more time.

“I still have a year left in Madrid and then we’ll see what happens,” Modric told in an interview with FourFourTwo, via Marca.

“I feel good and I want to continue playing football for a few more years.

“I am focused on Madrid and the things we can achieve this season. Afterwards I will sit down to talk to the management, and we will look for a suitable solution for everyone.”
