Luka Modric rolled back the hands of time to produce some breathtaking moments of magic during Real Madrid's La Liga clash with Granada on Saturday, May 11.

The 38-year-old, whose current contract with Madrid expires next month, was in beast mode as Carlo Ancelotti's men ran riot against the already-relegated side.

A brace from Brahim Diaz as well as single strikes from Arda Guler and Fran Garcia ensured the Modric-captained side sealed a 4-0 resounding win, per Football Espana.

While many players his age might consider lucrative offers from the Middle East or the United States, Modric has continued to excel on the field, becoming an integral part of Real Madrid's success in clinching their 35th Spanish top-flight crown.

In his 30th appearance of the 2023–24 campaign, per Transfermarkt, the Croatian maestro demonstrated that age is truly just a number. With breathtaking moments of skill and precision, he left fans in awe.

Modric dazzles Granada players

In a video circulating on social media, seen by Sports Brief, captured Modric's mesmerising performance, where he effortlessly evaded opponents with his trademark agility and finesse.

One notable moment occurred in the first half, where Modric showcased his mastery of the game.

In a seamless transition from defence to attack, the ex-Tottenham star displayed remarkable vision and control as he skillfully navigated through opposition players, setting up his Joselu with a precision pass.

He also received a standing ovation from the Granada fans when he came off for Toni Kroos in the 70th minute.

Modric to leave Real Madrid?

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Luka Modric may be approaching the end of his tenure with Real Madrid, judging by his recent remarks.

Modric will see his contract expire this summer, and Los Blancos have not indicated a renewal.

Undoubtedly a legend at Real Madrid, Modric hinted at the challenges of maintaining the club's high standards in an interview from Dubai, suggesting his future at the Santiago Bernabeu might be uncertain.
