Ballon d’Or winner, Luka Modric has stated that he will like to continue his career at Real Madrid beyond his current contract.
The Croatian midfielder has a year and a half left on his contract, due to expire in 2020.
Modric has been linked with a move to Serie A club, Inter Milan, but the playmaker wants to remain at Santiago Bernabeu.
“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 Sevilla in La Liga.
“I am very happy and think we played a great game,” he said. “We are happy with our play and happy with the three points.
“We need to follow 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.”
