Modric wants to end career in Madrid

Real Madrid’s Luka Modric says he wants to end his career with the 11-time European champions.

The Croatian midfielder joined Los Blancos from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur in 2012, helping the club win two Champions Leagues and a Copa Del Rey during his time at Santiago Bernabeu so far.

“There might be teams interested in me but no one else interests me other than Real Madrid,” Modric, who has also been named as captain of his national team, told Croatian outlet Sportske Novosti.

“My mission is to be at Madrid as long as the club wants me and my desire is to end my career here.”

The 30-year-old also revealed that, though his side always want to win every match, winning the La Liga title is very high on Madrid’s priority list this season.

“All the competitions are very important and we always play with the idea of winning the title. But the Spanish League has evaded us in recent seasons.

“It has been four years since we won a League and for a club of this level that is too much. It’s time to change that.”

Finally, Modric said he agrees with Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane’s decision not to push for any marquee signings in this summer’s transfer window.

“I completely agree with the Coach, the team has a lot of quality and it is hard to find better players. Also, Morata, Asensio and Coentrao came back and they will help us a lot this season.”
