Juventus, the Serie A champions, is allegedly exploring a Bosman transfer for Luka Modric if he decides to leave Real Madrid as a free agent
It has been reported by a respected Spanish journalist, Sergio Santos, that Luka Modric has two offers on his table from foreign teams about a potential Bosman move during the summer transfer window. Juventus, the Serie A champions, are interested in signing the Real Madrid veteran on a free transfer.
Luka Modric has been with Real Madrid since August 2012. He joined from Tottenham Hotspur. He has played in practically every position. Even though he initially struggled at the Santiago Bernabeu, the Croatian has carved out a place for himself in Real Madrid mythology. He will go down in history as one of the club’s best-ever players.
To date, the 36-year-old has made 428 appearances for Real Madrid. Thus, scoring 31 goals and assisting on another 70 in that time. Although Juventus is showing interest in acquiring Modric in a Bosman deal during the summer transfer window. So, Real Madrid will need to act soon to ensure Modric’s long-term future with the club.
Considering how badly their midfielders have done over the previous several years, the interest from Juventus may seem shocking, but it is logical. Manuel Locatelli and Denis Zakaria are in for a great future at the Allianz Stadium. The Serie A giants want another trustworthy option in the centre of the field to maintain their current level of stability.
In this regard, Modric is a feasible target for Bianconeri. They have already lodged an offer to the Real Madrid veteran in connection with a potential Bosman transfer during the summer transfer window. Modric may serve as a short-term substitute for any of the three players named Arthur, Aaron Ramsey, and Adrien Rabiot. All of them are facing unclear futures at Juventus due to reports of interest from international teams.
The Croatian international recently addressed the extensive rumours surrounding his future. Thus, implying that he views himself as a Real Madrid player for the remainder of the season. However, with just a few months remaining on his contract, Los Blancos will have to be decisive. Particularly with Serie A heavyweights Juventus waiting in the shadows of the stadium.
Modric has received an offer from a Qatari club in addition to the one from Juventus. In any case, Real Madrid is desperate to retain hold of the Croatian international. He will almost certainly stay at the Santiago Bernabeu beyond the summer transfer season.
