Luka Modric declared he had joined the greatest club in the world after completing his £33million move from Tottenham to Real Madrid.

The Croatia playmaker agreed a five-year contract with the Spanish champions, admitting he was determined to leave White Hart Lane as soon as he became aware of Real's interest.

"I chose the Spanish league because it's one of the best leagues in the world," he said. "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."
