Luka Modric finally closing in on Madrid switch

Tottenham’s Luka Modric has finally completed his switch to Real Madrid, and will be unveiled by the Spanish side according to The Daily Mail.

The diminutive playmaker has made his intentions to leave White Hart Lane clear, with Jose Mourinho’s men in negotiations over a deal all summer long in a protracted transfer saga.

Despite the north London side standing firm on their £40 million valuation initially, Daniel Levy has had to compromise and accept €34million (£26.9m) to facilitate a move before the transfer window closes.

Modric has not been part of Andre Villas-Boas’ training and as such a move was needed to end the player’s isolation at White Hart Lane.

It is thought that Tottenham will make a late push to reinvest the money made from Modric’s sale in other players before the window closes at the end of this week.
