Luka Modric off to Real Madrid?

Tottenham's Croatian midfielder Luka Modric has agreed with Florentino Perez and Jose Mourinho to join Real Madrid this summer, pro-Real newspaper Marca is reporting. The transfer fee? In the region of £30m.

Kaka, meanwhile, is reported to be staying at Madrid for another season at least.

During the summer Marca are forced to churn out a lot of rumours to fill their pages, but it's rare that Perez agrees with his manager so he will be desperate to get this deal done for Mourinho. The Portuguese man is keen for a better balance in the midfield, and feels that Modric is the man for this role, whilst others can expect to leave.
