Chelsea among the clubs hoping to snap up former Tottenham superstar

Spanish newspaper Marca has provided its English counterparts fodder for reams of rumours in January with former Tottenham playmaker Luka Modric having been rated as the worst signing of the season by the daily’s readers.

The Real Madrid super flop has been instantly linked with a return to the Premier League by the Daily Mail with the prolific rumour machine suggesting that Manchester City, Man United and Chelsea are all lining up a move for the 27-year old Croatian. Real Madrid spent £33 million on Modric after a rather protracted courtship period during which Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy sapped every penny he could from the Galacticos. However, with just one goal and one assist to show from the first half of the season, it comes as no surprise that Modric is being linked with a rather speedy return to England.

While the big money men will no doubt be eyeing Modric, it is possible that his contract might just include a clause giving Tottenham first choice of refusal on the player’s sale. Spurs fans are already on a high after their encouraging start to the season, and throw in Modric to the mix, and they could well be signing title winning songs yet again.

    I think he just wants Bale to go over so he has a friend.

  • Andy

    I believe that part of the deal when Modric went to Real Madrid was that Spurs would have first refusal and that he could not be signed by any other premiership club for at least one and a half seasons. However he can be loaned to other teams, but again Spurs have first refusal.
    This was something that was put in place as Real Madrid and Spurs agreed on some sort of partnership. Maybe Real might use Modric to try and get Garreth Bale. This maybe the reason for Spurs bidding for Crystal Palace whizz-kid Wilfred Zaha… Who Knows???

    No thanks, he was a bad distraction and we do not miss him, the grass is not always greener so let him go somewhere else, Levy got far more for him than he was worth so he was useful that way.

  • Bob

    ….so he has a friend to chat on the bench…lollllllll
