Modric, 32, has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan this summer and he could follow in the footsteps of former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo should he relocate to Serie A.
Speculation regarding a potential transfer to the San Siro has been gaining traction in recent weeks, though a move has so far failed to transpire, and Butragueno insists the Croat is more than content to remain in La Liga.
It is believed club president Florentino Perez is reluctant to lose two major stars this summer after the departure of Ronaldo to Juventus.
Butragueno made his comments prior to Real’s 4-2 defeat to eternal rivals Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup last night. Modric entered the fray in the 57th minute but was unable to help clinch his side the trophy.
Despite entering his twilight years, Modric was an instrumental figure in Croatia’s sensational journey to the World Cup final this summer, clinching the prestigious Golden Ball for best player at the tournament as a result.
It is therefore understandable that the current European champions are unwilling to part ways with their midfield maestro.
