Sergio Ramos is keen for Real Madrid to sign Luka Modric and believes that he would be a fantastic addition to the squad, a story from Talk Sport reports.
The Modric transfer saga has gone on for some time now and he has expressed his desire to leave his current club Tottenham this summer.
However, the La Liga side are not prepared to match Spurs’ valuation of their playmaker, which is believed to be £40 million.
The English Premier League team may now be able to keep hold of their star man as the deal seems to have stalled recently.
But defender Ramos said: “We’ve got a great squad, with amazing footballers, and one or two more will join.
“I like football and good footballers and Modric is one of them. He currently doesn’t play in this team and I can’t say any more than that. If he joins he’ll bring something to the team.”
Modric also wanted out of White Hart Lane last summer and was set to move to Chelsea and this year it is Spain which is his desired destination.
Real are looking to retain their title this season after pipping Barcelona to the post last year. Jose Mourinho will also want to build a squad that can challenge for the Champions League.
The 26-year-old is certainly a fantastic player that could be just what Mourinho’s men need. Time is running out though and they have just over three weeks to sign him.
