Levy to Real: Congratulations for winning with my players

Daniel Levy jokingly congratulates Real Madrid every time they win a European title.

Tottenham chairman Levy has dealt with Real on a number of occasions, most notably during the sales of Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.

Modric moved to Spain from White Hart Lane for around £30million in 2012, while Bale became the world’s most expensive player when he headed for the Bernabeu 12 months later.

Levy, renowned as a difficult negotiator, has a friend in Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

“He always goes for the top [amount],” Perez told Cadena Cope.

“We have become friends because of the time it took us to sign Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.

“Every time we win a European title, he sends me the same message: ‘Congratulations for the European title you have won with my players.'”
