Madrid Agree to Sign Modric from Tottenham

Tottenham have reached
an agreement with Real
Madrid for the transfer of
Luka Modric for a fee in
the region of £30m.
The Croatia midfielder, 26,
will travel to Spain on
Monday for a medical
before signing a five-year
contract.
Tottenham also
announced they are
entering a partnership
with Real Madrid, reports
the BBC.
The agreement will see
the two clubs working
together in respect of
players, coaching and
commercial relationships.
"Luka has been a terrific
player for us and, while
we preferred not to part
with him, we are pleased
that it is to Real Madrid, a
club with which we now
look forward to sharing a
long and productive
partnership," said
Tottenham chairman,
Daniel Levy.
Modric joined Tottenham
in 2008 in a £16.5m deal
from Croatian side,
Dinamo Zagreb.
He made over 150
appearances for the
London club, scoring 17
goals.
Real Madrid president
Florentino Perez
Rodriguez added: "We are
delighted to welcome
Luka and look forward to
working closely with
Tottenham in the coming
years."
Initially playing as a
defensive midfielder under
former manager Juande
Ramos, Modric was moved
into a more advanced role
when Harry Redknapp
became manager in
October 2008.
