Real Madrid director Butragueno hints Modric penning new deal

Real Madrid director Emilio Butragueno has intimated Luka Modric will be signing a new contract.

Butragueno appeared to confirm that Modric will sign a new contract at Real Madrid following their win over Alaves on Saturday.

"There are players like Modric who make this sport better," Real Madrid director Butragueno said after the win over Alaves.

"His pass to [Ferland] Mendy in the first half was a fine thing. It's a luxury for us to have him.

"He's given us so much; he's still giving us so much and he'll continue to do so."
