The media informs that Luka Modric is set to join the Saudi Al-Nassr after the season. The Croatian midfielder has a contract with Real Madrid until June and is set to join Cristiano Ronaldo on the Arabian Peninsula when it expires. The players played together in Madrid for six years.
Is Luka Modric going to join Ronaldo at Al-Nassr?
An era ends. Luka Modrić, according to Arab media, is to move to the Arabian Peninsula after the season and join Al-Nassr, where Cristiano Ronaldo has been playing for several weeks. Earlier, the club’s activists reported wanting to sign Marcelo. Already on the occasion of the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo, Al-Nassr announced that the signing of the Portuguese was the first step to building power in the Arab league. Now the authorities want to sign 37-year-old Croatian midfielder Luka Modric. A contract with Real Madrid binds the bronze medalist of the Qatar World Cup until the end of the current season, and – according to the Arab media – he does not intend to extend it. Ronaldo is 18 years old, and he is from brazil.
“Al-Nassr obtained the signature of the Croatian star”
– we read in Alarabiya News. The portal argues that “the transfer will be confirmed soon.” According to the media, Modric would receive a contract in Arabia at the level of around 20 million euros per season. It would be more than 10 times less than Ronaldo’s chemistry, who signed a fabulous contract at the club (around EUR 200 million per season).
Marcelo to Al-Nassr? Is the Arabian club making the old Real Madrid team?
The experienced Brazilian pondered for a long time about taking the next step in his career after ending his long spell at Real Madrid. He finally signed a one-year deal with Olympiacos in September with an option to extend his contract for twelve months.

Currently, there are no indications that both sides are interested in longer cooperation because the 34-year-old does not play a leading role in the structures of the Greek team.
In addition, there have recently been reports suggesting that the side defender’s paths with the Piraeus team will part much faster, but in the end, it has not happened so far.
However, this does not prevent Al-Nassr from monitoring the situation of Marcelo, who could join his former Real Madrid teammate in mid-2023.
The former Real Madrid international has made ten appearances this season, scoring three times.
