Real Madrid coaching staff are unenthusiastic about moving for Tottenham ace Luka Modric.

AS says Modric is strictly second choice for many at Real behind Manchester City midfielder David Silva.

Silva is the player Real powerbrokers believe can take the team to a new level, but know City will prove difficult negotiators.

Modric is eager to make the move to Madrid, but inside the club he is regarded as very much 'Plan B '.
