Spurs have stated that the croatian mid-fielder would be joining the spanish champions subject to the completion of a medical and announce a partnership agreement between the clubs

Goal.com confirmed that a fee of £33 million had been agreed between the two sides, including add-ons, and the north London club have now stated that Modric will be leaving for Spain before the end of the transfer window.

However, Spurs have also stated that the clubs will be working together with players, coaching, best practices, and commercial relationships.
"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," Spurs chairman Daniel Levy told the club's official website.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez stated: "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."

The club added that they wish him well for the future, after he made 160 appearances for Spurs in four seasons, scoring 17 goals.
