Luka Modric says that he has "no hard feelings" towards Tottenham Hotspur after finally completing his move to Real Madrid.

New Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has insisted that he has "no hard feelings" towards Tottenham Hotspur following a drawn-out transfer saga.

The Croatia international has been at the centre of a tussle between Spurs and the Spanish giants throughout the summer but managed to finalise a five-year contract at the Bernabeu today.

"Everything started before the Euros," said Modric. "It was hard as I wanted to be [at Madrid] as soon as possible, but sometimes negotiations go on longer than expected.

"Now I am very happy to be here. Of course it has been a tough time, almost one month without training fully with a team, but finally it has been done.

"I want to thank all the people at Tottenham. I had four great years there, and I enjoyed every moment. I want to thank everyone who made my life enjoyable in London. There are no hard feelings on my side, this is a new page in my life. I am looking forward."

Reports have claimed that the deal is worth up to £33m.
