WHAT HAPPENED? The Croatian midfielder is out of contract at Real Madrid at the end of the season.

However, GOAL understands that Real officials have yet to contact the 37-year-old or his representatives to kickstart extension talks.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Modric is concerned due to the fact renewal negotiations have never been handled like this in the past, and it is now possible that the Croatia international will drop into the free agency pool this summer. Real consider the matter to be on hold for now, as they are still studying a potential fresh offer for Modric while factoring in his age and status at the club.

AND WHAT'S MORE: It has been reported that Real were not happy with Modric's decision to continue to play for Croatia following the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup. The 37-year-old has no definite plans to retire from international football anytime soon and hopes to feature at Euro 2024 in Germany.
