Modric tipped to make sensational Tottenham return - pundit

Tottenham have a “great chance” of re-signing the “phenomenal” Luka Modric next year.

That is according to former Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the future of the Real Madrid superstar.

Modric, 36, is out of contract at the Spanish giants next summer and his long-term future is up in the air.

He has been linked with a return to the Premier League and Robinson, who left Tottenham in the same year that Modric joined in 2008, believes a move back to north London is on the cards.

“Do not not rule out a return to Spurs,” Robinson told Football Insider. “I think they’d have a great chance of re-signing him because he enjoyed his time there. He is still so well thought of there. 

“There will be no shortage of takers for him if he wants to come back to the Premier League.

“Regardless of what system a team plays, Modric would fit it. He can play across a three, in a four or in behind a striker.

“We all know the immense talent of Modric. He’s a phenomenal player.”

 Modric remains a key player at Real even though he turned 36 in September.

He has started 16 La Liga and Champions League matches this season out of the 17 he has played in all competitions, including Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Inter Milan.

During his nine years at Real – who he joined from Spurs in 2012 – Modric has won four Champions League crowns and two Spanish league titles.
