Modric wants to stay at Real Madrid amid Al Nassr rumors
With his contract due to expire this summer, the Real Madrid veteran has been linked with a move to Al Nassr. However, Modric hopes to extend his contract with the club.
Luka Modric has won 22 trophies during his 11 seasons with Real Madrid. However, he will be out of contract at the end of the season. Being linked with a reunion with his former Los Blancos teammate Cristiano Ronaldo at Al Nassr, the 37-year-old midfielder made it clear his priority is to stay with Madrid.
"My wish is known: to stay at Real Madrid,"
he said at a pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday's meeting with Wales.
"I believe and hope that it comes true.
"The rest of what's said is just assumptions and rumours. I repeat the same thing for the hundredth time: I hope and believe that I will stay at Real Madrid."
Being asked about being retired from Croatia, Modric said: "
Short and clear – no."
Modric is set to overtake Drazen Ladic as his country's oldest-ever player.
"I didn't know that before the conference and I don't know if it's good or bad!"
"I feel great with the national team and I'm glad to be here. I feel happy when I'm here.
"We are all focusing on the Wales game. Hopefully we can get a positive result and take that confidence to Turkey.
"The most important thing is that we win tomorrow. We know we are the favourites and are expected to win, but football is unpredictable and you need to be at 100 per cent."
