La Liga defending Champions Real Madrid has signed Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric for £30million. Real Madrid really needs his role in team, but they need to replace current player for his presence.
Modric signed for Spurs in 2008 for £16.5m and he did nice job for them. He played for Croatian national team in Euro 2008 and Euro 2012.
26-years-old Croatian made five years deal with Real Madrid after he cleared medical for them.
He is delighted to play with Cristano Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso, Karim Benzema and Mesut Ozil. Real Madrid also happy to sign player like Modric.
Modric said: “I’m very happy, honoured and proud to be at the biggest and best club in the world. I’m very excited,”
“I chose the Spanish league because it’s one of the best leagues in the world,”
He added: “And I chose Madrid because they are the best club in the world. They’ve won so many things, so many titles. It’s amazing for me to be here.”
“When I heard that Madrid noticed me, the rest lost interest.
“This is the best club in the world, with the best coach, the best players.
“Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Angel Di Maria, Gonzalo Higuain, Mesut Ozil, Xabi Alonso – I look forward to playing with them.
“I’m ready for anything and I’ve come here to win a place in the starting team.
He concluded: “I know that will be hard but I believe I have the qualities needed to play here. I want to help the team win titles.”
Real Madrid announced on their website: “The new player of Real Madrid, Luka Modric, has passed the medical which he has undertaken at the Hospital Sanitas La Moraleja, prior to his signing for the club.
“The Croatian has passed the different tests that he has taken without any problems.”
