Croatian midfielder Luca Modric passed a medical exam and signed a five-year contract with Real Madrid on Monday, thus completing his drawn-out move from Tottenham Hotspur.

Modric, 26, said at a press conference he's glad the process is over and mentioned that on such a talent-laden roster he's not assured of a starting spot.

"I have to work very hard to earn a spot in the starting 11 and I'm prepared to do it," he told reporters. "I've come here to improve every day and to win titles with Real Madrid. These are my personal goals. I believe I have what it takes to play here. I've got everything I need and I want to enjoy football and to learn. "I'm grateful to Tottenham, but I'm now opening a new page in my life."

Spanish media reported Real would pay $43 million euros for Modric, plus another $9 million depending on appearances and the team's performance.
