In a shocking piece of news, it looks like Arsenal will prepare an ambitious move for Real Madrid star Luka Modric.
The 32-year old has had a trophy-laden stint at the Bernabeau since joining them 6 years ago- back to back Champions League crowns and one La Liga title. At the same time, he is well aware of the replacement policy followed at Madrid.
Modric is now resigned to the fact his six-year spell in Madrid is coming to an end, with Diario Gol claiming he has already told club captain Sergio Ramos he will leave next summer.
It has been reported that the Croatian’s most likely next destination will be the San Siro, with Inter already establishing contact with the player’s representatives.
But it’s believed that both Manchester United and Modric’s former club Spurs are also in the running.
United boss Jose Mourinho brought Modric to the Bernabeu during his spell in charge of Real and is said to remain a huge fan of the maestro.
It has also been rumoured that Spurs will offer their former star a route back to north London in what would be a sensational return to the Premier League.
But Arsenal have also come into the picture right now, which makes it very intriguing indeed. With Santi Cazorla almost finished at Arsenal, Modric could easily fill in his large shoes.
His Tottenham allegiance will come in the way though, and could be a big factor in preventing this move. But you never know!
