Today we have scoured online Spanish newspaper Marca.com to bring you the latest ongoing news in the Spanish transfer market. With speculation still looming on the whereabouts of Luka Modric, Bruno Soriano and Filippo Inzaghi next season, there is plenty of juicy transfer gossip for us to sink our teeth into.
Luka Modric misses Spurs first training session
Tottenham Hotspur’s first training session in preparation for the new Premier League season was without want-away midfielder Luka Modric, Marca reports. Despite being asked to arrive at Spurs Lodge to begin training this morning, the Croatian never showed up at the required meeting time and barely stayed over an hour to meet and greet Spurs’ new boss Andre Villas Boas. Many Spurs fans will no doubt be feeling the effects of ‘dejavu’ as it was this time last year that the central midfielder looked to be on his way out of White Hart Lane and onto pastures new with London rivals Chelsea.
However, this time Real Madrid is surely a more tempting offer for the Croatian on the back of last year’s momentus La Liga title win. However, will the Spurs star risk squandering first team football for a dream move to Madrid? Is he even good enough? The plot thickens.
Atletico chase highly-rated Bruno Soriano
Atletico Madrid have technically-gifted central midfielder Bruno Soriano in their sights following his club Villareal’s relegation from the Primera Division last season. Soriano, who is a target for Atletico boss Diego Simone because of his ‘positional flexibility’ will more than likely make the switch to the Spanish capital and avoid spending next season playing in the Segunda Division for Villareal.
Granada plot move for Italian star Inzaghi
Thirty-nine year old Italian footballer Filippo Inzaghi could be on his way to Granada after being made a free-agent by his former club AC Milan this summer. The international striker who is also wanted by English Championship outfit Watford feels he has one top-flight season left in him and is more likely to make the move to Spanish minnows Granada, Marca reports.
