All sources of the English media stated that the Modric's desire is that the agreement between Real Madrid and Tottenham can be reached as soon as possible. The Croatian wish it was before Saturday because that's when the English club will travel to the U.S.A for its pre-season stage and Luka Modric does not want to travel there in any way.
The transfer of Luka Modric to Real Madrid is close, but the English club will harden the road. It is not going to be easy, and less at this time of summer. The economic difference, which is the only obstacle to close the transfer is not so great, but Tottenham is not going to give the player when there is still a month and a half to the end of the market. And above all, considering they are talking about a player with contract until 2016, meaning that Tottenham is in no hurry to close the transfer unless Real Madrid pays the money that Daniel Levy, president of Spurs, wants and desires.
We must remember also that the club in North London did not sell the Croatian player last season by a dramatic amount of money. Chelsea then offered 40 million pounds, not euros but pounds, around 50 million euros. And Levy said no. A lot, then. It is true that this summer the situation is different. Tottenham are willing to sell, for a high price of course, but it is receptive.
Luka Modric will speak today Wednesday or Thursday morning, with the leaders and coach of the London team; the Portuguese coach Andre Villas-Boas already gives up. Luka will try to press, something that he did last year and that it was useless, because then Tottenham did not want to transfer the player. Now the situation has changed. The club also welcomes the fact that this summer, at least for now, the Croatian player has not submitted the always annoying transfer request, a formality by which a player formally asks his home club to let him go. And Luka is going to leave, but in good way, even at the base of many millions agreed.
