Today is the day that the talks between Daniel Levy and Florentino Perez will be reactivated. Luka Modric's signing could be officially announced in a few hours. The business will close in 30 million euros plus 5 variables (Levy still trying to increase these variables). Real Madrid also has the disadvantage the euro-pound exchanging is unfavorable. These are the last fringes that must be resolved before the presentaton of Luka Modric at the Bernabeu Stadium.
Tootenham is looking for a substitute in the midfield but it's not even a problem. Villas-Boas said on Saturday after losing at Newcastle on their debut in the Premier League: "The Modric's issue will be closed in a couple of days. It is independent in the two contracts we have to do (a midfielder and a center forward)".
Today also could be closed the transfer of Sahin, on loan, because Mourinho still believes that due to his youth (23 years old) and quality (was voted player of the Bundesliga in 2010-11) can still be useful in Madrid. Arsenal and Liverpool are the two most interested teams, but the favorite destination option for the player is the London side. For one simple reason: the midfielder wants to play the Champions League, and only with Wenger's squad could do it. Real Madrid and Arsenal will continue talking today about the deal. Arsenal needs soon a midfielder after the sale of Song to Barcelona for 15 million pounds (19 million euros). Real Madrid wants to maintain control over the future of Sahin.
