Madrid are reportedly growing increasingly frustrated at the fact that Spurs won’t accept less than £40m for Modric and have threatened to re-sign Wesley Sneijder (Oh no please don’t).
Real president Florentino Perez has warned Spurs that the Spanish giants are running out of patience (Patience with what? patience with the fact we won’t sell our players to big clubs on the cheap and defend the right to ask for a fair price?) and that Madrid could look elsewhere if Daniel Levy doesn’t agree to budge on the price.
The fact that Levy is standing firm is also frustrating Modric who is desperate for a move to Real Madrid but Levy will be more than happy to force Luka into completing another season at Tottenham if the club don’t get the price they want for their star player. A fee of around £35m was reported to have been agreed but nobody from either club has confirmed.Follow @TrfficTottenham
