MADRID (Sporting Alert) — Real Madrid are reportedly ready to drop their pursuit of Tottenham’s Luka Modric and make a move for Inter Milan’s Wesley Sneijder.
It is believe that Jose Mourinho and his Real Madrid bosses are becoming more and more frustrated with their Tottenham, who continues to reject their bids for the clearly wantaway midfielder.
The Croatian outlined earlier this summer that he has no interest in staying at White Hart Lane with the Barclays Premier League side, and Real Madrid became one of the major clubs, who immediately began to show interest.
And the Bernabeu outfit remains favourite to land the creative midfielder, who only just returned to training with Tottenham after going on AWOL earlier this month.
It is believed that Madrid have come as close as possible to the £40million asking fee, but Spurs remain unmoved.
A frustrated Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has now become fed-up, the Mirror claimed and could pull the plug on any deal.
Real Madrid were hoping that Tottenham’s chief Daniel Levy would have been more lenient to work out a deal, following the late bid they struck in 2010 for Rafael van der Vaart, who immediately became a hit at White Hart Lane.
Mourinho has worked with Sneijder during his days at Inter Milan and he apparently has his sights set on bringing in the Dutchman to replace Kaka.
Manchester United were said to be interested in Sneijder as well, but the move for Shinji Kagawa has virtually killed any move.
United and Chelsea were also being linked with Modric, but he’s keen on joining the Spanish champions.
