Dinamo Zagreb sporting director, Zoran Mamic: Luka Modric is now a Real Madrid player.
Zagreb stand to pocket £2.5m from the Modric sale as part of a sell on fee which saw Modric arrive at Spurs in 2008 from Zagreb for around £16.5m and it is believed that Mamic has been made aware of the situation and has told the Croatian press that the deal is “done”.
Madrid have been tracking Modric for a while and Spurs have stood firm over the price of their star player but reports yesterday stated that the two clubs had now agreed a fee of £35m for Modric. Reports are saying that the deal will be concluded tomorrow. It is believed Luka has already agreed terms with Madrid and the stumbling block was the fee between Spurs and Madrid but now that seems to have been agreed there is nothing stopping this move going through in the next couple of days.
Spurs themselves will be keen to splash the cash from the Modric deal as AVB sets his sights on Moutinho and linking up with his old boss from Porto is very appealing for the Portuguese star.
Modric is Madrid bound.
