Modric tells Tottenham he wants to join Real Madrid

Posted on July 19, 2012 by admin

Luka Modric has told his bosses at Tottenham that he is determined to be A real Madrid player next season. The 26-year old Crotian playmaker did not join his Tottenham team mates for training today, as he tries to persuade the club not to block his dream move.

Spurs are demanding no less than £35 million for the midfielder who is contracted with them until 2016. There is a danger of Madrid backing out of the deal and that would leave Modric angry and upset. Last summer, Chelsea were rebuffed by Tottenham even though Modric believed he had a “gentleman’s agreement” with the chairman Daniel Levy.

Modric refused to play in the opening game of last season and was expecting to be allowed to join Chelsea but it did not happen. Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp managed to then convince him to concentrate on football. It seems as if the same thing could happen again. Levy should seriously consider how the player will react if he is forced to stay at White Hart Lane against his will.

The current manager Andre Villas-Boas has spoken to Modric and says “I understand his point and he understands the club’s point.” Levy is a hard negotiator but neither Madrid or Manchester United agree with his valuation of the player. Will Modric be able to persuade him to lower the price? I hope so.
