It’s been rumored that Rüdiger to Real Madrid has gained speed, as the player has lowered his demands. The deal isn’t settled yet, but sources say his future is expected to be in Real Madrid. The reliable Fabrizio Romano, however, only stated that it is a work in progress.

Manchester United was the team that offered him the better contract, but the German wants to play in UCL.

In the meantime, Modric's contract will be extended until 2023. And that was already confirmed by Romano:

Are Mendy, Abala and Casemiro out vs City?
