‘I have a good relationship with the club and it continue like this,’ Modric told Diario AS.
‘I’m sure we’ll reach an agreement and do what is best for both parties.
‘It won’t take two minutes to reach an agreement. I’m not thinking about it right now. My wish is known and the club know that.’
Modric helped secure Real Madrid’s first silverware of the 2021-22 season as he powered home to score in their 2-0 Spanish Supercopa final win over Athletic Bilbao at the weekend.
The World Cup Golden Ball winner will boast an incredible 10-year tenure at Real Madrid when his current contract comes to an end in June. The Spanish side signed Modric from Tottenham for £30million back in 2012.
During his decade-long campaign with Real Madrid, Modric has been a key component to their success and crucial to their four Champions League trophies.

Modric was a regular starter for the club in both the 2016-17 and 2019-20 seasons when Real Madrid won the LaLiga title and continues to be a regular figure in boss Carlo Ancelotti’s plans this season, with 14 starts from 21 league games.
After his impressive performance in the Spanish Supercopa final, Real club president Florentino Perez believes the Croatian can win another Ballon d’Or title.
As well as his impressive club career, the Real Madrid star also has a stunning international career and is Croatia’s most capped player in history.
Modric has claimed that he intends to play for his country at his fourth World Cup this year in Doha.
