Modric, who left Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2012 and joined Real, played as a key midfielder for 11 years. He has participated in 488 matches in his career and has lifted 23 championship trophies. Among them, the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) 5 times and Spanish La Liga 3 times are included. 

His personal career also peaked at Real Madrid. He led Croatia to runner-up at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and won the Ballon d’Or in the same year. It was the first time since Kaká in 2007 that a player other than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo won the Ballon d’Or.

Born in 1985, he has reached his late 30s, but he still plays a significant role in Real Madrid. Last season he made 52 appearances, including 33 in Spanish La Liga.

Modric was offered a big-money Saudi Professional League offer this summer, but turned it down in favor of continuing his playing career at Real Madrid. Journalist Fabrizio Romano, who is well versed in European football, wrote on his Twitter account, “Modric received a large offer from a Saudi club, but he politely declined. There was only one reason. He played again at Real Madrid, his ‘life club’. , wanted to win,” he said.
