For Luka Modric, Ancelotti already has the ideal strategy

At the end of last season, Modric signed a one-year contract extension with Real Madrid, although not long, but still enough to help the Croatian midfielder towards new goals in his career.

According to Diario AS, Carlo Ancelotti intends to rotate Luka Modric more frequently in the 2022–23 season due to the mid-season World Cup this year.

Aurelien Tchouameni would be the player to take his spot in the Real Madrid midfield, with Toni Kroos and Casemiro being the unquestioned starts.


Although he is technically a defensive midfielder, Ancelotti thinks the Frenchman can play higher up the field.

When he has possibilities like Eduardo Camavinga and Dani Ceballos on the bench, the coach using Tchouameni in a more advanced capacity would be undoubtedly unexpected. 


In the opening match of the league season, Camavinga will start in Modric’s spot on the bench. The veteran, though, had to be added by the coach at halftime.


With another year of playing for Real Madrid, Luka Modric will close the record of the legendary Ferenc Puskas – who holds the record for the oldest player to ever play for the Spanish royal team at 38 years old. 233 days. By June next year, Luka Modric will be 37 years and 303 days – that’s just one year behind Ferenc Puskas’ record. According to many sources, Real Madrid is ready to sign Luka Modric until 2027 if he still maintains his fitness base.

Besides, the Croatian player will have the opportunity to experience the Bernabeu stadium after the upgrade process. According to the schedule, the renovation of the Bernabeu stadium will be completed by the end of this year.


As for football fans, they will have at least one more season to witness the delicate passes of the player wearing the number 10 shirt.

Luka Modric’s level is debatable but to get to the current level, he has to prove for a long time. The Daily Mail page once wrote an article criticizing Luka Modric and calling him the most disappointing signing of the 2012 summer transfer window – when he first moved to Real Madrid. Currently, Luka Modric is the owner of the 2018 golden ball award, besides, he also has 20 titles with the Spanish royal team.
