LUCA MODRIC COMPLETES £33 MILLION MOVE TO REAL MADRID AS TOTTENHAM ENTER INTO PARTNERSHIP WITH SPAINISH GIANT


Tottenham player Luka Modric will be unveiled as a Real Madrid player on Monday after they hammered out a £33million move for the midfielder.

Spurs will receive £27m from Real, plus another £6m in various add-ons.
The fee is a blow for Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, who was holding out for a figure in the region of £35m-plus. 

Modric passed his medical on Monday as he puts the finishing touches on his move from White Hart Lane.

Madrid have confirmed that the Croatia playmaker has successfully completed his medical tests with the Spanish giants and is now set to pen to paper on a five-year contract at the Bernabeu.

A statement on Real Madrid's official website read: 'The new player of Real Madrid, Luka Modric, has passed the medical which he has undertaken at the Hospital Sanitas La Moraleja, prior to his signing for the club.
'The Croatian has passed the different tests that he has taken without any problems.'

Spurs are desperate to bolster their squad after a slow start to the season and the money will help fund moves for two Brazilians they are chasing - Willian of Shakhtar Donetsk and Leandro Damiao of Internacional. 

The two clubs have also agreed a new 'partnership' that, according to Spurs, will see them 'working together in respect of players, coaching, best practices and commercial relationships.'

Real president Florentino Perez added: 'The strong relationship and affinity between our two clubs has resulted in the cementing of a longer-term partnership and the successful transfer of Luka Modric.

'We are delighted to welcome Luka and look forward to working closely with Tottenham in the coming years.'
