Ok, maybe this isn't hot or sexy. Although I don't know what sorts of weird fetishes you have. It's the internet, and there are lots of weird fetishes. If you are a Chelsea fan, love Luka Modric and are into masochism, then this will be verrry sexy. Which means it sucks for the rest of us. The word on the information super-street is that Tottenham Hotspur ace Luka Modric has agreed terms with Real Madrid, which all appeared sourced from this Mirror article:
Everything has been resolved satisfactorily. Luka and Madrid agree on everything. The only problem is the position of Tottenham, which has made things a little more difficult. But everything will be solved. And, more importantly, it will be resolved quickly.
First of all, it's important to note that that's an unnamed source, and unnamed sources should probably met with something between bemused silence and outright skepticism. It's not a trusting world anymore. Secondly, Modric agreeing personal terms with Real Madrid doesn't mean a transfer is going through if Spurs don't want to sell. Thirdly, if this does go through Chelsea should be pushing very, very hard to acquire Nuri Sahin. There's simply not enough space in the Madrid midfield for all three of him, Modric and Xabi Alonso to get regular playing time, and that's unfortunate since they are all mega-fun.
Can Chelsea hijack this deal? Maybe! Is it going to happen? Likely not! This has been your hot sexy Luka Modric update!
