There is a flurry of activity here in the Football Transfer Tavern as our regulars muse over the Sunday Express and their claim that Luka Modric is considering a move away from Real Madrid.
The Croatian international has been injured for a significant amount of time but it seems that is the least of his worries with his wife making it clear to the former Tottenham star that she wants to leave the Spanish capital.
That paves the way for both Chelsea and Manchester United to reignite their interest in the player.
However, considering Cesc Fabregas is now a Chelsea player, we think that Jose Mourinho will resist linking up with his former player and let Louis van Gaal have a head start in persuading the player that a return to the Premier League is the best solution all round.
Given his wife was happy in London when the 29-year-old was at Tottenham Hotspur, we think that could well be the deciding factor in a move.
Manchester United fans. Could Modric be the player you need in the middle of the park? Let us know your thoughts below.
