Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric is set to move to Spain this summer according to compatriot, and close friend, Mate Bilic.

Modric has frequently been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane, and speculation regarding his future has increased since the departure of Harry Redknapp last week.

According to the Daily Mail, Real Madrid are desperate to sign the 26-year-old midfielder as Jose Mourinho looks to improve his La Liga winning side.

Manchester United are also keen on Modric but, says former Croatia teammate Bilic, Spain will be the destination for Modric, which points towards a transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I’m very good friends with Modric," said the Sporting Gijon striker, as reported by the Daily Mail.

"He wants to play in the Spanish league. He loves the Premier League but he wants to play in Spain. He’s very close to agreeing a move."

Chelsea had tried to sign Modric last summer, and Spurs rejected as many as three bids for the Croatia international, with the final offer totalling around £40 million.

It is unclear if Roman Abramovich will renew his interest in Modric during the imminent transfer window.
