Tottenham Hotspur: Harry Redknapp urges swoop for Luka Modric after Gareth Bale done deal

Tottenham Hotspur: Harry Redknapp urges swoop for Luka Modric after Gareth Bale done deal - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Speaking to ITV News, ex-Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has urged his former club to re-sign Real Madrid star and Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric after completing a sensational swoop for Gareth Bale – going on to say that Daniel Levy can ‘do a lot worse’. 

Modric, who broke Spurs hearts when he parted company for the Galacticos alongside Bale, has gone on to have a wonderful career in La Liga and on the world stage – winning the coveted Ballon d’Or prize in 2018 and picking up four Champions League titles. 

A 124-cap international, Modric has arguably done the lot – just missing out on a World Cup triumph with his native Croatia following a 4-2 final loss to France.

Should Spurs re-sign Modric along with Bale?

Yes, we'd be in dreamland

Now, Redknapp believes that Levy should take him off Madrid’s hands along with his star-studded teammate.

Claiming the club should go through with a ‘double deal’, despite the 35-year-old’s £180,000-per-week wages, Modric would arguably be a more-than suitable heir to ex-creative midfield player Christian Eriksen.

Tottenham sold the Dane to Inter Milan in January, failing to find a replacement since then, but reliable football.london correspondent Alasdair Gold recently claimed that the club are not looking for an attacking midfield player.

Regardless, at least hypothetically speaking, Modric’s return would certainly turn a similar amount of heads – evident by his praise from Spurs icons in the past.

Who did Villas-Boas replace as Spurs manager in 2012?

Hero and soon-to-be Tottenham ace Bale lauded the Croatian as ‘unbelievable‘ during their time together at the Bernabeu, meanwhile Redknapp has heaped praise on the ‘special‘ star whilst he was manager at White Hart Lane.

While this transfer seems unlikely, there is reason to believe many Spurs fans would never have expected a Bale announcement this summer either.

Spurs fans, would you take Luka Modric back at 35-years-old on £200,000-per-week? Have your say in the comments below…
