Modric WILL sign for Real Madrid soon

Posted on August 19, 2012 by admin

There are two clear signs that the Tottenham and Croatia midfielder Luka Modric will be announced as the new addition to the Real Madrid team. Firstly, the 26-year old creative midfielder did not feature in the squad for Tottenham in their opening game of the Premier league season, which they lost to Newcastle. Secondly, Jose Mourinho has not included Nuri Sahin in his 22 man squad ahead of Madrid’s opener today against Valencia.

That might not seem like absolute proof, it isn’t, but in football nothing is definite until it is announced officially. Modric will have to undergo a medical and the personal terms will have to be finalized, but it is all over bar the shouting.

23-year old Turkish international Sahin does not play exactly the same role as Modric but Mourinho was only going to let him go on loan for the season if Modric came in. Despite his statements to the contrary, Mourinho has no intention of using Kaka in the Madrid side this year and the Brazilian will probably soon re-sign for AC Milan. The fact that Sahin was left out of this squad after being included throughout pre-season means that he is about to move on, probably to Arsenal.

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is already talking about how he will spend the money from the sale, so it really is just a matter of time.
