Modric transfer sparks Tottenham-Real Madrid alliance

Tue 28th Aug 2012 | Football Club Management

Tottenham Hotspur has formed a partnership agreement with Real Madrid as part of the deal that saw Luka Modric sign for the Primera Division champion on Monday.

The announcement came as an aside to the conclusion of one of the summer’s most protracted transfer sagas. The Croatia international playmaker has signed for Real for a fee believed to be in the region of £30 million.

Although English Premier League outfit Tottenham did not disclose the exact nature of its new partnership with its Spanish counterpart it said the two clubs would work together in the fields of commercial relationships, players, coaching and “best practices”.

“Luka has been a terrific player for us and, whilst we preferred not to part with him, we are pleased that it is to Real Madrid, a club with which we now look forward to sharing a long and productive partnership,” said Daniel Levy, chairman of Tottenham Hotspur.

Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, added: “The strong relationship and affinity between our two clubs has resulted in the cementing of a longer-term partnership and the successful transfer of Luka Modric. We are delighted to welcome Luka and look forward to working closely with Tottenham in the coming years.”
