The Croatian, 26, has already announced he will leave Tottenham this summer. He assured it in Herzegovina.info, but did not specify where he will play the 2012-13 season. Also was published by Spanish media that Real Madrid had an agreement with the player. The Spurs called for 50 million euros in initial negotiations and asked about the possibility of signing Nuri Sahin in exchange, but the Turkish player refused.
But Luka Modric aims to close his move to Real Madrid before July 17 or he will begin to think about other options, as was published yesterday by Daily Mail. Modric begins to weary of the lengthy negotiations between the clubs. In fact, he expected to have closed his move to Real Madrid immediately after the Euro 2012 and now is upset. Not be ruled out he can start the season at Tottenham. Real Madrid is trying to sell some of the players that Mourinho does not want in the squad (Lass, mainly) before making signings.
Villas-Boas, new Tottenham coach, intends to retain the Croatian midfielder, but the truth is that he has started looking for alternatives. Sigurdsson or even Lass Diarra are interesting players for him. And is that for the Portuguese coach will be difficult to convince the player, given that Tottenham will not play the next edition of the Champions League.
