So if Sky Sports are to be believed, Luka Modric is to fly to Spain tomorrow to finalise his move to Real Madrid from Tottenham.
They are reporting that it’s for a fee of £23.5million which could rise to £27.5million. Could these figures be correct? After placing a £40million valuation on the Croatian’s head is Daniel Levy really going to buckle and sell for much less?
Surely Modric is not worth just £8million more than the £15million that Liverpool have paid for a relatively unproven Joe Allen! There is no doubt that Modric needs to be shipped out of White Hart Lane, but only for the right price – after all, he does have 4 years left on his contract.
