Want-away White Hart Lane star Bernabeu bound.
Tottenham midfielder Modric to fly to Spain to complete Real Madrid move
A breakthrough has finally been reached as the Liga champions aim to complete a £30 million deal for Spurs’ wantaway midfielder
Luka Modric is poised to fly to Spain on Thursday to finalise a £30 million move from Tottenham to Real Madrid.
The midfielder will jet into the Spanish capital after appearing for Croatia in their friendly against Switzerland on Wednesday night.
Sources have told Goal.com that Real have agreed a fee worth £30m with Spurs for Modric to finally bring an end to the long-running transfer saga.
Modric is expected to have a medical with the Spanish champions in the next 48 hours before putting pen to paper on a deal.
This deal, like another long running transfer saga rooted in North London, appears to be coming to an inevitable conclusion. Ever since Luka Modric made it clear he wanted to leave, for the second summer running, it has appeared that the 26 year old was destined to leave White Hart Lane and now that Real Madrid have edged ever closer to Daniel Levy’s valuation of the midfielder, a deal is likely to be done.
Andre Villas-Boas would clearly have liked to start his first season in charge of Tottenham with all of the club’s top talents but having seen Gareth Bale sign a new long term contract perhaps the sale of Modric can be considered an acceptable loss following the club’s inability to secure a Champions League berth.
Modric will join a Real Madrid squad chock a block with talent and the quick thinking schemer may well find it hard to cement a place in Jose Mourinho’s first team plans, though one would imagine a £30m outlay guarantees his chances of an early run at impressing the La Liga side boss.
