Tottenham Hotspur to target summer transfer Luka Modric if contract talks fail with Real Madrid

According to journalist Ekrem Konur (h/t ESPN), Tottenham Hotspur are considering shortlisting Luka Modric as a target in the summer transfer window if contract talks fail with Real Madrid. Despite his age, he continues to shine at the top level for Los Blancos in Spain.

Modric has entered the final six months of his current deal with Real, meaning he could become a free agent next summer if a renewal is not signed. The midfielder could also sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs this month if he has made up his mind to leave Santiago Bernabeu.

Negotiations over a new contract are underway, and Spurs are keeping tabs to see if they have an opportunity to nab the 36-year-old next summer. They could offer him an option to return to London if talks with Los Galacticos end up in failure.

Tottenham eye Modric summer move if contract talks fail with Real Madrid.
Could Spurs have a chance to sign Modric?

A daydream?

Fabrizio Romano had confirmed earlier that it is only a matter of time before an extension is agreed between the Croatian and the Spanish side. He has found immense success at the Spanish capital and it remains to be seen if he accepts a deal that will see his contract extended to 2023.

If there is any chance that the deal would break in the coming days, we would be smart to pounce on that opening. The lack of a creative outlet in our midfield is clearly visible and despite his age, Modric could well be a smart addition in that regard.

An astute playmaker, the ex-Dinamo Zabreb star was one of the best midfielders in England during his time at Spurs. Signed by Juande Ramos in 2008, he left the Lilywhites for pastures new in 2012.

If the Ballon d’Or winner does renew his deal, it would perhaps be too late to go back in for him by the time he runs out his new contract. At 36, he is never going to be a long-term option for us, but he can certainly help us in the short term.

More than just an added pair of legs in midfield, Modric brings with him a certain degree of control and flair that often helps his team get the better of the opposition in the middle of the park. A reunion at N17 is certainly a fairytale scenario for us Spurs fans and while he would have been a worthy signing just on the basis of sentiments alone, he is still one of the top midfielders in world football.

A football enthusiast who is madly in love with the beautiful sport.
