Madrid president confident of signing Tottenham's Modric
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has revealed he believes Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luka Modric is destined for the La Liga champions, the Guardian has reported.
Perez is said to have told friends that despite interest from Chelsea, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, Modric has settled on Madrid as his next port of call. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is reluctant to sell to another Premier League club and PSG are ranked as outsiders for Modric’s signature, paving the way for the 26-year-old to move to Madrid.
Levy is not willing to give up Modric without a fight, however, and is determined to eke out the best possible deal for his club. Modric is said to be resolute in his desire to leave White Hart Lane this summer but that was also the case a year ago, when Levy refused to countenance a deal taking Modric to London neighbours Chelsea for £40m.
