Real Madrid will have to deal with a lot of business in the upcoming summer transfer window, starting with a move for Kylian Mbappe. The Frenchman is set to leave PSG in the summer, with La Liga exceedingly looking like his next destination.

The Spanish capital outfit also want to finalise a move for Alphonso Davies, meanwhile, who will cost a sum sub €50 million, if Bayern Munich do not want to lose their precious defender on a free transfer next season.

Madrid could also look to target a right-back in the summer window, but it is not a priority for them as things stand.

While this is going on, Florentino Perez and co. will also have to deal with exits, and especially players whose contracts are expiring in the summer. While there are a fair few players on the list, none more important than Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.

While Madrid have offered Kroos a contract extension and want him to stay for at least another year, Modric’s future is up in the air.

Madrid the pinnacle for Modric

Despite that, his love for the club knows no bounds.

“There is no-one better, Real Madrid is the top. The top. The rest, you know, are a step below. Hala Madrid!”, he said in a recent interview (h/t MadridXtra).

“When I arrived at Real Madrid, I thought I would win the Champions League once or twice, which was amazing. But I have five now, it’s really something crazy and unique.”

He also added, “We didn’t perform well in La Liga for many seasons but when we hear the UCL anthem the players transform, we become better, we play better. It’s difficult to explain but we are happy that it’s like this (laughs).”

Unsurprisingly, Modric was also asked about his future directly, and whether he will continue at the club next season. He gave a reply that seems in line with whatever the news has claimed thus far.

“I don’t know, I don’t.”

What is in store for his future?

Madrid seem happy to offer Modric a contract extension, under the terms that his role in the team will not change much.

In fact, with Jude Bellingham expected to play in a deeper role starting next season, things could get difficult for the Croatian, which is exactly what he wants to avoid at the tail-end of his career.
