Ex-Dinamo Zagreb chief Mamic: Levy included price for 5 shirts in fee for Spurs Modric deal

Former Dinamo Zagreb chief exec Zdravko Mamic has recalled selling Luka Modric to Tottenham.

The Real Madrid ace moved to Spurs in 2008.

Mamic recalled to Four Four Two magazine: "We already had an agreement for Modric to move to London. I asked Levy (Daniel, chairman) for five Spurs jerseys and he told me that he would give them to me, but that at that point Tottenham would pay a lower sum for the player's transfer, given that from the agreed €21m it would be subtracted.

"Levy is the best negotiator in the world. This story made me realize how much he values every single euro coming out of Tottenham's coffers."
