Modric agrees personal terms with Real, Juventus edge closer to Van Persie and Hulk pushes for Chelsea move.
According to the mirror Luka Modric has agreed personal terms with Spanish giants Real Madrid.
The Croatian is edging ever closer to Los Blancos, after Real failed to grasped David Silva from Manchester City.
Modric has agreed terms just days after Andre Villas Boas was hired as the new Spurs boss. However Modric has wanted to go to Spain for a while now.
Sources close to Modric have been quoted as saying: “Everything has been resolved. Luka and Real Madrid agree on everything.
“There is a little more difficulty with the position of Tottenham but everything will be solved and will be resolved quickly.”
Los Galacticos boss Jose Mourinho might soon be able to achieve what his former club Chelsea were unable to do last summer.
Van Persie to the Old Lady?
Juventus are the new favourites to sign Arsenal striker Robin van Persie, 28, after they moved ahead of both Manchester United and City.
He may be set for a shocking move away from the Gunners with increasing speculation involving Italian giants Juventus, who are targeting the Arsenal frontman. The Dutchman has already established that he will not be signing another contract. If the Gunners don’t sell their skipper, he would more than likely leave on a free transfer in 12 months time.
But the Italian champions are now favourites to sign the striker, who scored a colossal 30 league goals last season.
Recent reports suggest that the Italian Champions Juve have already made an £8 million bid for Van Persie, only to have it rejected, but are currently preparing a bigger and more realistic effort to tempt the Van Persie away from English football. The new bid is expected to see the Italians pay £180,000-a-week to secure his services.
Chelsea look far from finished in their summer recruitment drive. Eden Hazard and Marko Marin may have already arrived for a combined outlay of close to £40 million, but more deals look set to follow.
Brazilian forward Hulk has been linked to a move for much of the summer, with Chelsea and Porto thought to be unable to agree terms over a transfer fee. But the 25-year-old’s agent has claimed that, despite interest from across Europe, the Premier League is the ideal destination for his client.
“Hulk is the most coveted player in Europe this summer,” Teodoro Fonseca said, according to TalkSport.
“I never said he wants to leave Porto because he belongs to the club, but if he is sold, it has to be in the best way possible.
“Now his dream is to play at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and it is my opinion that the Premier League is the best place he could play.”
