Real Madrid are in need of boost after a sluggish start to the La Liga season, and they are hoping Luka Modric will help provide that.

Modric's long-rumored move to Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur became official on Monday, with the Croatian international undergoing a medical at the Bernabeu Stadium after agreeing to a five-year deal with the Spanish heavyweights. The transfer fee agreed upon between the clubs was reportedly $47.4 million, and it gives Real Madrid another attacking weapon to go along with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gonzalo Higuain and Angel di Maria.

Madrid has gotten off to a slow start in La Liga, settling for a draw with Valencia on opening weekend before falling to Getafe this past Sunday. They currently trail Barcelona by five points the league standings.

Happy to see this Modric saga end? Think he will help Real Madrid turn things around? How do you look back on his time with Tottenham?
