Croatia midfielder Luka Modric dumped lucrative offer from Saudi Arabian giants Al-Hilal to sign a new one-year deal which will keep him at Real Madrid until the summer of 2024.

Al-Hilal made the 37-year-old midfield icon their main target after seeing Messi choose Inter Miami and offered a mammoth two-year contract worth €70m per season to lure Modric to the Saudi Arabia.

The Croatia midfielder, whose contract had been set to expire at the Bernabeu, had been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia’s Pro League.

Modric, 37, has made 488 appearances for Real, winning three La Liga titles and the Champions League five times since arriving from Tottenham in 2012.

He also won the Ballon d’Or in 2018 as Croatia reached the World Cup final.

Following an announcement of his new contract in the Spanish capital, Modric wrote “Home Sweet Home,” on Twitter.

He follows Toni Kroos, Dani Ceballos and Nacho Fernandez in extending their contracts with the club this summer and is still regarded as a key player for the 14-time European champions.

Real have already completed the high-profile addition of England international Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund this summer to add further competition for places in their midfield.
