Tottenham stars have taken to Twitter to wish Luka Modric good luck after he finally completed his move to Real Madrid.

One player who doesn’t look to have got his move is Joey Barton who has hit out after the apparent collapse of his rumoured Marseille switch, while Edwin van der Sar has ruled out a potential comeback.

Elsewhere Rio Ferdinand is not interested in buying a pet snake and David Luiz has hit out at the traffic, read on in Goal.com’s latest Word on the Tweet…

“Would like to wish Luka all the best in Madrid. Been a pleasure to know and play along side him in his Spurs career”

Tottenham’s Tom Huddlestone congratulates Luka Modric on his big-money move to Real Madrid.

“Wishing Luka all the best with Madrid a great player and top man will be missed around the place.”

Aaron Lennon also wishes Modric good luck, and is already missing the Croatian.

“Doesn't look like this Marseille thing is gonna happen now. 'Whatever doesn't kill you make you stronger' #heartbroken”

Joey Barton is gutted after his proposed switch to Marseille looks to have collapsed.

“Why can't things just be simple. Maybe this is time to dumb down and be dishonest. It seems to take you a long way in this game.”

More Barton, who is getting all reflective again. Spare me.

“Hi guys, just visiting some old friends and no training today!”

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar rules out any chances of a sensational comeback.

“Good day at the zoo today with the family weather wasnt the best but my little mans smile made it all worth it #family”

Another Tottenham player Kyle Walker enjoys a day out at the zoo with his family.

“Good morning #geezers ! The traffic is so bad on A3,but #enjoythelife ! Big kiss my friends!”

Despite moaning about the traffic, Chelsea’s David Luiz is loving in London.

“Watched Deadliest 60 with the lil men, what a series that is....fun + educational about animals! "Can we get a snake dad" yeah pretend ones!”

Rio Ferdinand enjoys watching animal programmes but is less keen on getting a snake as a family pet.

“England changing to nike! About time I say however I think an adidas kit would be even better!”

Jem Karacan is happy England are changing their kit supplier Nike, well sort of.
