Luka Modric, the 38-year-old Croatian midfielder, is reportedly set to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season and join the Saudi Pro League, as reported by Spanish media. Modric's playing time has been reduced due to the arrival of English superstar Jude Bellingham. His agent had previously hinted at several offers from other clubs, including one from the capital. Although Modric is currently considering staying at Real Madrid, the allure of a multi-million-pound contract in the Saudi Pro League could be too difficult to resist.
Real Madrid had previously declared that they were not open to any deals with Saudi clubs. However, it appears that the club might allow Modric to leave in the summer and not during the January transfer window, as they aim to retain him as injury cover. A proposal similar to that of Modric's former teammate Karim Benzema, who made a move to the Saudi Pro League, could be put forward by a Saudi club.
With Modric only starting in five out of seventeen matches so far this season, his departure from Real Madrid is becoming increasingly probable. As his career nears its end, a move to the Saudi Pro League offers the Croatian midfielder a lucrative opportunity. Real Madrid fans will await official confirmation of this transfer, while Modric's potential move to Saudi Arabia signals the closure of his successful chapter at the Spanish club.
