The Croatian national team manager Igor Stimac has criticised the stance taken by the Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy over the situation surrounding the star midfielder Luka Modric. It is quite clear that the Croatian midfielder Luka Modric wants to leave the club in order to sign for Spanish club Real Madrid. The Spanish club are willing to pay around £ 30 million in transfer fees for the player, but Tottenham have been extremely stubborn in their decision not to sell the player for anything below £ 40 million. As a result, there has been a lot of confusion regarding the future of the player.
The manager of the Croatian national team, Igor Stimac, has said that Daniel Levy is the only person responsible for this situation surrounding Luka Modric. The 26-year-old midfielder has become subject of intense transfer rumours for the last two seasons now. Tottenham managed to keep hold of the player last season on the promise that they would allow him to leave to a much bigger club this time around. However, they have fallen back on their promise and have not allowed the player to complete his dream move to Real Madrid according to the Croatian manager Igor Stimac.
“I don’t like the situation that he is in at all, he has not played any matches at all this summer. He will end up signing for Madrid before the market shuts,” said the former West Ham defender in a recent press conference. Luka Modric has not been training with the Tottenham first-team. The Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas also confirmed recently that he wants an end to the Modric saga because it would allow him to move on and secure a replacement for the playmaker. Tottenham have been linked with the Portuguese international Moutinho.
