Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has insisted that he remains focused with the team and is still as hungry as ever to win more titles with the Spanish La Liga giants. The Croatia international midfielder was linked with an exit away from the Los Blancos at the end of last season, with reports claiming that Madrid president Florentino Perez was keen to offload the former Tottenham Hotspur star because he was already past 35 years of age.

However, the former Spurs man only recently signed a new contract at the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium and will be staying with the Galacticos for at least one more season, with his new deal set to expire in June 2022 (next year). The Croatian midfield star has now revealed that he feels fresh in a recent interview with the club’s website and that he is still looking forward to helping the club challenge for every single available trophy starting from next season.

Two seasons ago, Inter Milan president admitted that he loved Modric and would love to sign him for the Italian Serie A giants but Real Madrid were never open to selling him then and he remained in Spain instead. Since then, he has continued his career in fine fashion during which he has also been crowned a Ballon d’Or winner.

Speaking in the interview, Modric says he is solely focused on closing in on Atletico Madrid and Chelsea next season – the two clubs that won the Spanish La Liga title and the UEFA Champions League titles respectively. He added that it would be great if the club:s players can bounce back from their disappointing season where they could not win a single trophy, and declared that every member of the squad is interested in returning to the top of the La Liga table next season.
