Luka Modric says he is willing to take whatever pay cut is necessary to ensure his time at Real Madrid is extended beyond the end of this season.
The Croatian midfielder’s current contract expires in June.
And according to Cadena SER, this means accepting whatever terms the club deem necessary to keep him.
The 35-year-old’s willingness to reduce his salary will be come as welcome news to the Real Madrid hierarchy, with finances at the club extremely stretched as a result of the current pandemic.
Madrid are believed to have asked the players to take another reduction to their pay recently, a proposal which the players have rejected as a group.
Modric’s situation shows though that there may be an acceptance from some individuals that compromises will have to be made.
Should he extend his contract for another year, it would be the midfielder’s tenth season in Madrid, having joined from Tottenham for £30m in 2012.
