Despite interest from Saudi Arabia, Luka Modric signed a new contract with Real Madrid earlier in the summer, extending his stay at the club to a twelfth season. The Croatian international sealed a one-year contract, which will take him until the end of the current campaign. While Modric seems to be focused on his current spell at Real Madrid, his former club, Dinamo Zagreb, dreams of the possibility of recovering the 38-year-old player to finish his career where it began.
The club that dreams of signing Luka Modric
In an interview with Index (via MD), Dinamo president Vlatka Peras expressed his desire to bring Modric back to the club next summer. “He is in the last year of his contract, I will call him in the winter. I can’t say I am in constant contact with him, but I know members of his family. It would make sense for him to return to Dinamo at the end of his career. Dinamo will certainly do everything in their power to make this happen. Now we will see if That will be enough.”
It would be a fairytale ending to an incredible career if Modric returned to Dinamo Zagreb next summer, although at the moment it is unlikely the player is thinking about that possibility. His focus, as always, will be on Real Madrid and contributing to the team’s success this season.
Modric is revered at both Real Madrid and Dinamo Zagreb, and his return to the Croatian club would be an emotional moment for fans and a fitting way to come full circle in his career. However, Modric’s future remains uncertain and will depend on many variables, including his own will and the final decision of the white club. Modric and football fans will be attentive to how events develop in the coming months.
