Croatia boss expects Modric Real move

Published Add your comment

Croatia's head coach is disappointed Andre Villas-Boas is not picking Luka Modric, but expects the unsettled playmaker to complete his move from Tottenham to Real Madrid soon.

As of yet no club have reached the reported £40million asking price Spurs are demanding for Modric's signature. The midfielder refused to travel to the United States for Spurs' tour and has not been picked for any of the club's other pre-season games since.

That has not gone down well with Croatia coach Igor Stimac, who plans to give Modric his first game of the summer on Wednesday when Croatia face Switzerland in Split. "I don't like the situation that he is in at all, he has not played any matches at all this summer," Stimac was quoted as saying on "He will end up signing for Madrid before the market shuts."
