Speaking after Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League clash against Chelsea earlier this week, Luka Modrić responded to questions regarding his future and his contract situation at the club.
Modric put in a superlative display against Chelsea and was hailed all across the globe for his performance in a crucial encounter for Real Madrid. At the same time, it also gave way to questions over his future beyond the current season.
Modric, who will turn 37 in a few months, sees his contract with the Spanish giants run out at the end of the season. Talks over a new deal have been taking place in the background. When quizzed about the situation of his contract, the veteran superstar insisted that his focus is on seeing the season through with the team right now.
As quoted by Fabrizio Romano, Modric said, “I go year by year as always. Now the important thing is we are in the semi-finals. I give my best on the pitch to give back all the affection Madridistas show me.”
