Real Madrid star Luka Modric has asked club bosses to OK his move to the Westfalenstadion.
The Croation midfielder is said to have his heart set on joining Thomas Tuchel at Dortmund.
Although the move is expected to go through, negotiations are believed to have stalled on Real Madrid's asking price for the player.
Dortmund's initial bid of €40 million was considered to be too low, according to club insiders.
