Modric: Tottenham requests a meeting with Real Madrid

The Modric's story has undergone a 180 degree turn in the last hours. The arrival of Lucas Moura to PSG (the other team bidding for Modric) and the proximity to the start of the Premier League season have meant that Tottenham is now the side more interested in solving the situation of the Croatian player. Hence, according to The Sun, the English club has requested a final meeting with Real Madrid to close the transaction.

The pressure exerted by the player to play for Real Madrid has helped and the pass of time is becoming an ally favorable to the white club because Tottenham has moved to negotiate. Not surprisingly, the Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy, has already reduced his claim by the Croatian; 45 to 38 million euros.

However, the Real Madrid only wants to pay 30 million euros and 8 depending on goals achieved by Luka Modric in Madrid. The meeting requested by the English club should be decisive for both sides to agree on a compromise. Meanwhile, Modric continues training alone waiting to see how his dream of signing for Real Madrid comes true.

Andre Villas-Boas, Tottenham coach, acknowledged that Modric will not be joining the team until he will not be psychologically prepared: "He continues training alone. It is a covenant between us. Has not been agreed nothing because Real Madrid does not approach what he wants the president. We understand Modric and he also understands us".

"Without the appropriate offer, Luka will not go away" said Spurs coach. "The contacts we have had with other clubs have not come to agree with what we want for Tottenham in exchange. It is somewhat difficult. We respect the dimension of Real Madrid and the clubs interested, but they must also respect what we are doing", he added.
