June 15, 2020 – Luka Modric revealed plans for his future to the Italian Gazzetta. reports that the captain of the Croatia national team, Luka Modric, said in an interview with the newspaper La Gazetta dello Sport that he would play at a high level for another two years, and then attend a coaching course.

“I am sure I can play at a high level for another two years, after that we will see. I would like to finish my career at Real Madrid, but it will also depend on the club. After that, I will attend a coaching course,” Modric said.

The midfielder is the oldest in the Real Madrid dressing room at the age of 34, and his contract expires in a year, on June 30, 2021.

“I feel like a normal person who loves modesty and moderation. I am persistent. My teammates in Madrid call me ‘vinagre’ (vinegar) because I do not accept defeat in training,” said the Croatian captain.

He said that he would continue to play for Croatia, which is expected to play in the European Championships next summer.

“For us, the national team is more than football. As a player, and a coach, I would be honored to be there,” he noted.

Last year, the media speculated about his possible departure to Milan when Zvonimir Boban, the former captain of the Croatia national team, was the director there. Still, Real Madrid and Boban himself said that there was nothing to that story.

“Boban was my idol when I was a boy, and I bought a red and black jersey because of him. I imagined myself a Milan player, but in the end, my path was different. And when you come to Real Madrid, you don’t think about going to other clubs. If things didn’t go well in Madrid, I would consider the Italian league. But, honestly, my only priority has always been Real Madrid,” said Modric.
