According to an exclusive update by El Chiringuito TV, Jose Mourinho has personally contacted Real Madrid star Luka Modric in his attempt to land an ‘unbelievable‘ January arrival – with these talks being revealed on the Spanish broadcast network.
Modric, who has been tipped with a Spurs return recently, will be free to talk to other clubs in January as his contract looks set to expire at the end of the season – with Mourinho initiating talks to convince the player over a move to Tottenham.
Should Spurs re-sign Luka Modric in January?
100%, bring him home
Not a chance
Modric talks revealed
Indeed, as per this exclusive update by El Chiringuito, Mourinho has held personal talks to land the playmaker in January as Spurs move to potentially recapture another old fan favourite.
Daniel Levy secured the sensational return of Gareth Bale from Real over the summer, but this news suggests they aren’t done there – coming amid reports they have also been offered a chance to re-sign Christian Eriksen.
Given both Modric and the Galacticos haven’t come to terms on a new deal, Real will be forced to offload the Croatian next month if they want to make any sort of profit from his signature.
Transfer Tavern take
A serial winner, it appears Modric and his time in the Spanish capital is coming to an end, with Mourinho phoning him over a sensational reunion in north London.
Whether or not he does end up re-signing for the Lilywhites remains to be seen, but it would certainly be an exciting coup.
