REAL MADRID superstar Luka Modric has signed a new contract keeping him at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2023.
Modric has enjoyed tremendous success at Real ever since his arrival from Tottenham in 2012 and has been rewarded after helping the club win its 14th European title.
And the star midfielder will be looking for more silverware next season when he celebrates his 37th birthday.
An official club statement read: "Real Madrid CF and Luka Modric have agreed to extend the player's contract, who remains linked to the club until June 30, 2023."
Modric continues to play a key role at Real as he amassed three goals and 12 assists in 45 matches across all competitions this past season.
The Croatia international has been Los Blancos' maestro in the middle of the pitch in the last 10 years.

The 36-year-old has registered a total of 31 goals and 73 assists in 436 appearances.
Modric has also turned into a leader for the Croatian national team as he led them to the 2018 World Cup Final.
That earned him that year's Ballon d'Or award, which made him the first player to win the prestigious honour after the continuous success of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The ex-Tottenham star also recently picked up his record 150th cap for his country.
