White Hart Lane midfielder Bernabeu bound?
Real Madrid set to offer £35m for wantaway Spurs midfielder Modric
Luka Modric’s departure from Tottenham could be secured within the next 48 hours with Real Madrid set to offer £35million for the Croatian star.
The Spanish champions are prepared to offer a straight cash deal for the 26-year-old although they could be willing to offer a player in exchange, with Turkish midfielder Nuri Sahin being the most likely candidate as a direct replacement for Modric.

Now that Tottenham boss has openly stated that offers for Luka Modric would be considered it seems only a matter of time before the Croatian completes a move away from White Hart Lane and this source believes such a deal is within 48 hours of completion.
Real Madrid lead the chase for the 26 year old midfield schemer and one would imagine that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy would much prefer to sell one of his prized assets to a side abroad rather than to a Premier League rival.
There appear to be a number of stories circulating that surmise that a player swap may be incorporated into the bargain and Turkish playmaker Nuri Sahin is said to be the favourite to be included in just such a deal, though some sources have stated that veteran centre back Ricardo Carvalho could also be an option.
It seems that Tottenham were more open to the sale of Modric the moment that Gareth Bale committed to the North London club by signing a new four year deal.
Andre Villas-Boas will hope that any funds accrued from the sale of Luka Modric would be used to bring in further additions with the Portuguese boss already having seen Jan Vertonghen and Gylfi Sigurdsson both join the club, having already been close to completing move to Tottenham before the former Chelsea boss even arrived.
