Tottenham set for crunch talks with Modric

Luka Modric, Tottenham midfielderTottenham chairman Daniel Levy will sit down with Luka Modric on Wednesday to sort out the player’s future, The Sun report.

The Croatia international has set his sights on a move away from White Hart Lane, with Real Madrid eager to bring the eastern European playmaker to the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, with the clubs struggling to reach an agreement over the proposed fee, Levy is set to sit down with Modric to discuss his future.

Spurs initially have rejected a number of offers from the Spanish champions, and were holding out for £40 million for their star player.

However, it is believed that Levy is ready to lower his demands to £32 million for Modric, with the threat of the player going AWOL to force a move through.

A Spurs insider has stated that Levy finds it difficult to relinquish his demands for Modric.

“Daniel always likes to drive a hard bargain but this is a difficult one. He prides himself on getting the money he wants but the clubs are too far apart.

“Modric is desperate to go and while he agreed to stay after what happened last year, he is not going to like it if he is made to stay this time round,” he/she concluded.
