Luka Modric, the 36-year-old Croatian leader who deserves to retire at Real Madrid

At Real Madrid they have played cracks, stars, galactic… but Luka Modric he is a magician. Low profile, who is known as the ‘Cruyff of the Balkans’, has written his own story in his own handwriting in the ‘White House’, a story that – at 36 years old – still does not have such a close auction. The Croatian’s goal in the final of the Spanish Super Cup It is the patent proof of its unquestionable validity.

Breaking the equality in the definition of the title in Riyadh against Athletic Club was not an easy mission for Real Madrid. However, when the minutes of the first half were running out, the oldest leader of the merengue team appeared to start the triumphant journey in Saudi Arabia.

Luka Modric, with the exquisite class that characterizes him, finished off perfectly with his right foot after a great individual play by Rodrygo and celebrated, with a smile from ear to ear, the first goal of the white squad. And not just any one.

. It only cost 35 million and every euro has been worth it, it even falls short. And it is that, with a lot of effort, the Croatian has become an indisputable figure of the Spanish team and to this day, after 10 years, he still is.

In fact, the ‘Wizard’ has signed his eighteenth title with the merengue club, with four Spanish Super Cups with a final celebration counting this Sunday’s. Thus, it is confirmed that the victorious adventures of the Madridista ’10’ remain in full swing.

– Unquestionable validity –

Much has been said about the future of Luka Modric in recent years. His name has been linked to the league in China, Japan, MLS, among others.

He doesn’t talk much, but on the pitch he always does. Without exaggeration, the Balkan midfielder is a living legend of football. The Ballon d’Or of 2018 -deserved for many, as for others not- fully supports him. And it is that his great performances still do not have an expiration date.

Although it was thought that this season he would be more on the substitute bench than on the field, the reality is totally different. Carlo Ancelotti is aware that the veteran midfielder, with all the experience he carries, is an indispensable weapon in his scheme.

Even so, Real Madrid doubted more than it should in the last contract renewal of its ’10′. In fact, the extension of their link has only been for a year. And time is proving him right.

Age is just a number. Very close to 37 years old and with the enormous talent that is still pressing, everything indicates that Modric will continue at Real Madrid in 2023. At the Santiago Bernabéu they support the motion and it will only be a matter of the club getting down to work. Undoubtedly, the Croatian’s continuity is the best decision that can be made for the benefit of Real Madrid.
