Luka Modric’s contract at Juventus ‘unlikely’

The midfielder’s contract with Juventus expires on January 31 and is likely to be re-negotiated at a later date.

Modric, who turns 30 in August, is one of the best midfielders in the world and has a great deal of international experience.

He has been linked with a number of clubs around Europe including Arsenal, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur.

He scored a brace in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich last season and is regarded as one of Italy’s best young talents.
