Luka Modrić Salary & Contract Breakdown (2022-23)

Last Updated: June 26, 2023

UPDATE 6/6/23: Modric has agreed to a new contract to remain at Real Madrid through 2023-24.

After so many years, the Croatian icon is still one of the world’s most impactful midfielders — check Real Madrid’s Luka Modrić contract particulars.

The 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup could end up being the final major international bow for a couple of legendary soccer figures. And while Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi dominated the discourse entering the competition, Croatian icon Luka Modrić is absolutely not to be forgotten (though he’s additionally expressed a desire to represent Croatia at EURO 2024, at which point he’ll be 39 years of age).

At the club level, Modrić’s contract at Real Madrid is currently set to expire on June 30, 2023, and los Blancos are understood to be targeting replacements despite intentions by “the Croatian Cruyff” to sign a new deal at the Santiago Bernabeu, where he’s won three La Liga titles, a Copa del Rey, and five UEFA Champions League crowns to date.

With that in mind, let’s examine Real Madrid’s Luka Modrić salary and contract particulars as the all-world midfielder chases one last deal from the Galacticos — or a lucrative opportunity to put a bow on his exemplary career elsewhere.
