Luka Modric: Expected to complete a move to Real Madrid in the next few days
Luka Modric will complete his move to Real Madrid in the next few days, according to Dinamo Zagreb director of football Zoran Mamic.
The 26-year-old has been chased by the Primera Liga champions for most of the summer and a deal appears imminent.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy had steadfastly refused to sell the Croatia international unless their valuation is met.
Levy turned down a reported £40million bid last summer from Chelsea, who had elevated the playmaker to their number one target.
It appears Tottenham will now accept a reduced fee for the former Dinamo Zagreb starlet who seems intent on leaving White Hart Lane.
"You read many things in the media but from the information that I have, Luka will move to Real Madrid for sure," Mamic told 24sata.
"I've heard it's almost done, so I don't have any doubts Luka will play for Real Madrid next season.
"It is just a question of when the official announcement will be."
