Many football fans did not expect Neymar to move to Saudi Arabia to play for Al Hilal after he left PSG last summer. The Brazilian star went on to have a new experience and gain more money, which makes him one of the richest athletes in the world. Luka Modric is thinking differently about his career because, despite interest from Saudi Arabia and being 38 years old, the Croatian midfielder wants to continue at Real Madrid. His contract with Real Madrid expires this summer. The bill salary at the club will get more expensive with the high potential arrival of Kylian Mbappé, but Modric is ready to take a 50% wage cut to stay at Real Madrid, according to Radio MARCA.

Modric is reportedly one of the top earners in the Real Madrid squad at the moment. The Croatian midfielder reportedly earns $448,000 a week and earns a yearly wage of $23.3 million. His new salary for next season could result in around $11.6 million if he does take a 50% pay cut, which would be lower than 11 first-team players.

Modric’s agent spoke to MARCA about his future, and it looks very likely that he will stay for another season at Real Madrid. His agent said, “The most likely thing is that Luka will stay for one more season. Luka Modric is a Real Madrid fan who loves the club and considers it his home.” Fabrizio Romano reported that Modric received crazy proposals in terms of money to leave Real Madrid, but he does not care. He only wants to stay at Real Madrid and is ready to cut his salary. The club now knows it.

The other reason why Luka Modric will extend his contract with Real Madrid

Not only will Real Madrid want to renew Modric’s contract because the player will take a pay cut, but the club will also want to reward him for his attitude this season. The Athletic reports that Real Madrid wants to reward Luka Modrić's performances in the more secondary role he’s had this season, with his professionalism and competitiveness hugely valued by those around the team. Modric has played a total of 30 games in La Liga this season, starting in 17 of them.
