Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy sacrificed £10 million in selling Luka Modric to Real Madrid.

The Sun says the Spurs supremo finally allowed wantaway Mod to seal his £30million move to Real Madrid last night.

Levy had told the Bernabeu giants they would have to cough up £40m.

But he decided to accept the Spaniards' lower offer and get him out of the country - rather than risk the deal collapsing and the Croatian getting snapped up by Chelsea or Manchester United.
