Modric Agrees Four-Year Deal At Real Madrid

By on July 8, 2012

With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Luka Modric has moved a step closer to moving to Real Madrid.

Luka Modric

Man Utd and Chelsea look to have missed out on Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric after the player is reported to have agreed contract terms with Real Madrid, according to the Mirror.

The report claims that the Croatian is almost certain to leave White Hart Lane after making it clear to Spurs officials he wants to leave the club this summer.

Modric has been strongly linked with a move to Spanish champions Madrid in recent weeks and the Mirror now suggests that a transfer could be concluded in the next few days after the midfielder agreed terms on a four-year deal with Jose Mourinho’s side.

An apparent ‘source’ told the Mirror:

“Everything has been resolved satisfactorily.

“Luka and Madrid agree on everything. The only problem is the position of Tottenham, which has made things a little more difficult .

“But everything will be solved. And, more importantly, it will be resolved quickly.”

A ‘source’ told the Mirror

The only thing that remains is for Madrid and Spurs to agree upon a fee for the 26-year-old. Real are said to value Modric at around £28m, but Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is holding out for a fee nearer £35m.

Modric has previously been linked with both Manchester United and Chelsea (source: Daily Mail) but its understood Levy would prefer to sell abroad rather than strengthen a Premier League rival, and may be prepared to accept a slightly lower fee from Madrid.

New Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas hasn’t given up hope of persuading Modric in to staying in north London but if he does lose his man, he will at least have a sizeable war chest to strengthen his squad with this summer.

Football Talk Verdict

While the validity of this so-called ‘source’ is questionable at best and it also has to be asked whether Tottenham would let their player negotiate contracts terms before a fee has been agreed, the transfer of Modric to Madrid does look like a formality.

No doubt it would benefit Spurs more to see him go abroad and despite Levy being one of the best negotiators around, i can see him coming to a compromise with the Spaniards and Modric will get his move.

Do you think Modric will end up at Madrid? Get involved in the comments section.

    It will be preferrable to get modric to support hazard and mata and then moses and hulk to replace drogba and kalou respectively.

    now its evidently clear that daniel levi refuse to let modric go to chelsea, even at a higher price. Therefore, i am of the opinion dat chelsea should nt creat any avenue for daniel sturidge transfer to tottenham. He (daniel levi) has proved to be an enemy of chelsea, he has succceded in creating an hostility between the two clubs so, we should sustain the hostility by not allowing any of our players to ply his trade in tottenham. Is just a matter of time the man will be shown the way out of the club exalted position – he has shown to be a poor administrator by refusing to sell modric to chelsea at a higher price. To crown it all, he sacked a manager that took the team from grass to grace and who is believe to be one of the best hands in premiership to employ a manager who nearly send chelsea out of champions league.

        A couple of thoughtful posts from obvious Chelski supporters….look at the spelling……Dis…dat…, why shouldnt Levy hold our for 40m from the likes of chelsea and Rael Madrid?, the fools will pay it for the over rated over priced player that has been mediocre at best, keep it up Levy as you are obviously getting to the Chelski supporters!
        Harry Redknapp was a great appointment at Spurs, did you know that Spurs had only 2 points from 8 games when Harry came to the rescue…lol, however he had peaked and quite rightly Harry’s peak was not good enough for Tottenham, we wanted more so levy appointed a manager in AVB who has a fantastic record in Europe, it was understandable that player power from a team of prima donas would not allow AVB to transfer his obvious and proven abilities to Chelski so they stamped their feet, pointed and screamed and talk the russian mafia guy to sack AVB….Chelsea’s loss will hopefully be Tottenhams gain!…..time will tell.

          wow! even Modric knew he can’t achieve anything useful at Tottenham and ‘ve to seek where success is achieved no matter how they play. further more, Modric can’t outplay Chelsea 1st eleven (watch 2011/2012 FA cup semis)he’s good no doubt bt in Chelsea he can’t outplay Mata in goal assist(match their records). so, if Levy refuse to sell him to Chelsea on the bases of strengthening his rival, his right!Bt knowing they(Chelsea) ‘ve a perfect substitution why waste huge money on him when AVB with his prestige couldn’t deliver anything to Chelsea…so Chelsea loss in AVB and Modric will certainly be whore to ur beloved Tottenhams….time has proved it!

      Is this “LEVI” the man who discovered levitation? Or is he somehow related to Daniel Levy. It’s bad enough posting such illiterate drivel without compounding it by posting it twice. Today’ poser- is
      orrlyray most challenged in the literary department or the technology department?

      Why should Spurs sell anyone to Chavski, who have shown time and again that they are totally without class.
      1st they tapped up Arnesen and disrupted Spurs management structure, then they tried the same thing with modric, which unsettled our start to last season.

      Spurs in contrast have always acted honourably towards chavski, even though they don’t deserve it.
      I doubt Spurs will be selling anyone to chavski in the near future.

      What is it with you people? Seriously the joke is over,if ever there was one,learn to spell,we have no idea what you’re going on about,you chavs have the spelling ability of three year olds!!
      Levy doesn’t want to sell to the Chavs,it’s simple!!! Just like the oligarch didn’t want to sell Parker and Duff to us.Get over it.

    The poor illiterate chavs are so bitter that a story appearing to suggest Modric is off to Spain is soon littered with their rambling rubbish about him still going to them. If I were them (and I’m so glad I’m not) I’d worry more about who their next manager will be once Di Matteo is shown to be inadequate and sacked by Christmas.

    Chavsky fans are truly the most illiterate bunch around. Anyhow, Levy is doing the right thing here. He should demand a higher price for players leaving to stenghten a competitor than for a transfer abroad. It’s a logical stance but of course it will not make sense to a majority of chavs.

    I find it very difficult to understand some of the so called English contained in some of the comments made here. Let us be clear. Modric is a great player and I wish we could keep him, but he wants to move on probably to Real Madrid, a great club.I say good luck to him, and I hope that we get a large fee which we can use to improve our squad and get the players we need.

    I am so delighted that Modric Has Agreed A Four-Year Deal At Real Madrid.
    Just one small thing has anyone told Daniel Levy yet!

  16. Clifford Chapman

    July 9, 2012 at 11:21 am

    Well since I can’t find an earlier comment I’m sure I made, doesn’t Modric’s so-called four-year ‘agreement’ with Real Madrid depend upon his present employers and those who pay him his salary?

    Any chance of your esteemed writers addressing the issues of contracts and whether anyone will ever have the balls and the bottle to test them in court?

    Matter of fact, if I was Levy I’d be telling Modric, and any other ego at the club, that they better get used quick to warming a subs bench because if they don’t show loyalty and personal integrity, that’s where their arse would be spending most of its time.
