Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric, insists he will retire at the Spanish club amidst speculation that he could move to Al Nassr.
The Saudi Arabian club landed Cristiano Ronaldo at the start of this year and continues to eye some impressive European players.
Modric has a rolling contract at Madrid and needs to sign an extension to stay beyond this season.
However, several reports have claimed he could leave and Madrid has yet to offer him an extension.
This could be a clear sign they will allow him to change clubs, especially as he doesn’t stop playing for his national team.
Fabrizio Romano had earlier suggested Madrid wants him to quit international football, but Modric loves representing his country.
Moving to the Middle East from Madrid will ensure he makes some good money while prolonging his career.
However, the midfielder has no interest in leaving Madrid and again insists his future lies at the Bernabeu.
Modric confirms that he is only thinking about remaining at the Spanish club despite all the news about his future.
He says via Daily Mail: ‘My wish is known, to stay at Real Madrid. I believe and hope it will happen. The rest are only assumptions and rumours. I repeat for the 100th time, I hope and believe I will stay at Real Madrid.’
Modric has been one of the most decorated players in the world football and he can even resign now and still be considered a legend in the game.
However, it would be interesting to see if Madrid gives him a new contract, considering they have so many new young midfielders in their squad.
