Real Madrid ready to offer cash plus players for Luka Modric

Luka ModricReal Madrid are ready to offer Ricardo Carvalho in a bid to land Premier League star Luka Modric. Croatian playmaker Modric wants to leave Tottenham and has made it clear playing for Jose Mourinho’s La Liga champions (8/11 to win 2012/12 La Liga) is his only choice of destination.

Spurs are resigned to losing the player but want £35million after rejecting massive bids from Chelsea a year ago.  The 34 year old Carvalho worked with new Spurs (2/1 Top 4 Premier League finish) boss Andre Villas-Boas at Porto and has several years Premier League experience with Chelsea including 3 League titles.

A player who looks to be on his way to Tottenham is Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor who scored 18 goals while on loan there last season.  City (5/4 to win 2012/13 Premier League) need to sell the player to enable them to up their pursuit of main summer target Robin van Persie from Arsenal.

Spurs are now prepared to deliver a massive U-turn and pay nearly all of Adebayor’s £170,000-a-week wages and, aim to do the deal this week. City believe the transfer would be a major step towards landing Arsenal’s skipper, as the Dutchman is not on speaking terms with the former Togo international (28/1 Top Premier League Goal Scorer).

Van Persie, who insists he does not want to sign a new Emirates contract, is understood to be keen on a move to the Etihad. But City boss Roberto Mancini is aware there is no way Van Persie (8/1 Top Premier League Goal Scorer) will go near the Ettihad Stadium if Adebayor remains a Man City player. Mancini also knows they must remove their excess big earners from the wage bill as they look to step up their bid for Van Persie.
