A Real Madrid player has renewed his contract until 2020 only a few weeks ago. This player is Luka Modric. Modric is a key player for Los Blancos and he has chosen to continue in Madrid instead of a multimillionaire offer from a Chinese club.
The Croatian midfielder expressed his happiness in the press conference he gave on Wednesday for the new contract with Real Madrid affirming his desire to finish his career at Real Madrid.
Modric election has been a major financial sacrifice for the Croatina player. According to Marca at least one of the Chinese Super League teams offered him a salary that doubled the amount of his deal with Real Madrid. The first offer consisted in a contract of four years with a salary of €15M nets per year and just before the Croatian midfielder started his negotiation with Los Blancos, the Chinese Club increases his offer to €20M per year. A salary than not everyone can have.
However, Luka is a football passionate and he is playing in the best team of the world, having a very good salary and playing the best competitions of this sport. Modric gave priority to football and he decided to stay in Real Madrid, where his salary is eight million net per season, approximately. This amount is significantly lower than the one offered from China, but higher than his previous contract with Los Blancos four and a half million per year.
Luka Modric is one of the best midfielders in all the entire world and we can say that the signing of the Croatian at Real Madrid has been satisfactory, not only because of his quality, Modric is an example for all the children that want to be professionals of this sport. This renewal has been the best news for Real Madrid in all the year because the Croatian midfielder is highly estimated by Real Madrid supporters.
