English and Spanish media in Sunday's editions announcing the forthcoming signature of Luka Modric on a multi-year contract with Real Madrid. Daily Mail, however, argues that Roman Abramovich has other plans!
Barcelona Sport goes much forward and wrote that the 26-year old Croatian midfielder could sign during Sunday. It is alleged that Real Madrid has advantage over Premier League rivals, Manchester United and Chelsea because they can get Modric for the lower price. Reportedly Daniel Levy - Tottenham's chairman, appreciates their best player to a 50 million euros for unenglish, and 56 for English buyers.
Madrid's AS also said that is nearing the end of the job, and will be completed, although Tottenham can complicate situation. The attached newspaper, however, argues that the Real Madrid has managed to lower the price from the original 50 to 40 million euros, and they include in this offer their 34-year old Portuguese stopper Ricardo Carvalho, who can be a leader of the defense, of the new coach of the London team, also Portuguese, Andre Villas-Boas.
Carvalho, who has one year remaining of contract with Real Madrid, can put down a cash price for Modric to a 35 million euros.
Madrid's Marca in the printed edition brings the text entitled with: "Modric - the missing link," while London's Daily Mail reports on the latest efforts of Chelsea for recapture of midfielder Modric from Real Madrid, and argues that Roman Abramovic will this time do all, to bring Modric to Stamford Bridge.
