Tottenham and Madrid to form parternship as a result of Modric transfer

Luka Modric is set to get his transfer to Real Madrid in a move which opens up a new world to both the Spanish side and Tottenham Hotspur. Reported by the BBC, the agreed fee for the Croatian is in the region of £30m but the deal has a lot more to it than the amount Madrid club are paying.

Spurs announced that the deal will see the two clubs enter into a long-term partnership which will have them work closely together in terms of players, coaching and commercial relationships. Daniel Levy is excited by the prospect that this shared interest agreement holds.

Levy said: “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.

The Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, echoed those words. He added: “We are delighted to welcome Luka and look forward to working closely with Tottenham in the coming years.

The clubs already share one close coaching connection in Jose Mourinho and Andre Vilas-Boas. The current Tottenham manager worked under the Real Madrid boss for a number of years including his stint at Chelsea. They eventually parted ways as Vilas-Boas pursued his own managerial career but it seems now they will be working closely together again.

Modric’s move sees Spurs not only form a partnership with one of Europe’s elite clubs but also has the North London side double their money. In 2008 they paid Dinamo Zagreb £16m for the midfielder, who went on to play 159 games for Tottenham and scored 26 goals.
