Modric wants to extend his contract at real Madrid after 2020
Real Madrid star Luka Modric said he wants to stay at the los blancos beyond his current contract.
Modric, who was linked with Serie A side Inter at the start of the season, is contracted to Madrid until 2020.
And the 33-year-old Ballon d’Or winner is pleased at the Santiago Bernabeu as he eyes an extension deal.
“I have a year and a half left on my contract and I am calm, as that’s a long time,” Modric told reporters.
“My desire is to stay here for more time. I am as happy as I was on the first day.”
Modric was speaking after scoring in Madrid’s 2-0 victory at home to stubborn Sevilla in La Liga.
The win saw Madrid leapfrog Sevilla into third position, seven points behind leaders Barcelona.
“I am very happy and think we played a great game,” he said. “We are in high spirits with our play and happy with the three points.
“We need to go after this path. Every player had a great game and our fans want to see us like this.
“We needed a match like this one to give some joy to ourselves and to the supporters. Personally, I feel good and have felt good for the past month and a half.”
On the title challenge, Modric added: “We don’t need to sense about Barcelona or about how many points we have. We need to go match by match.
“We need to battle and see where we get to at the end of the campaign. That’s what we need to do, not be anxious about others.”
Madrid face a Copa del Rey quarter-final first leg against Girona on Thursday before returning to La Liga action next weekend with a battle against Espanyol.
