Taking to Twitter to express his happiness at his new deal, the 35-year-old wrote: ‘Happy and proud to continue wearing the jersey of the best team in the world. #HalaMadrid.’
Despite his advancing years, Modric continues to play a starring role for manager Zinedine Zidane – making 48 appearances for Los Blancos in all competitions this campaign. He scored six times too – including a 90th-minute winner on Saturday as Real ended the season with a 2-1 victory at home to Villarreal.
Real’s No 10 has enjoyed a trophy-laden spell in the Spanish capital, having won 13 major trophies in nine seasons at the club – including four Champions League triumphs.
He also won the 2018 Ballon d’Or, becoming the first player other than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo to claim the award in more than a decade.
