It is now a little surprising that Tottenham are being linked with Real Madrid’s star man Luka Modric. Modric, considered to be one of the world’s best midfielder at the moment, turns 33 next year and Real Madrid president Florentino Perez believes Mateo Kovacic and Dani Ceballos are more than prepared to replace the Croatian.
Mousa Dembele, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Moussa Sissoko, Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama, Harry Winks.
All seven of them are Tottenham Hotspur players, yes but more importantly they have all played in the centre midfield position for the club at one point or another. While Dembele, Sissoko, Wanyama and Winks are the four regular choices for the two available positions there, Spurs also have Dier, Alli and Eriksen who can all play there as makeshift midfielders.
This would mean that with such an abundance of talent not only in the form of youth and experience but also guile and steel means, Spurs can boast of having one of the best collection of players in the middle of the park.
Real Madrid already has a host of midfield talent in their squad in the form of Marco Asensio, Isco, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Mateo Kovacic who can all play through the centre. Asensio and Isco are supposedly the future of the club and Kroos and Casemiro form the crux of the current team and are expected to be the backbone of the midfield for the coming years.
Tottenham currently have Mousa Dembele, Victor Wanyama, Harry Winks and Eric Dier who can play in the central midfield position. However, with Dembele on the wrong side of 30 and his injury proving to be a recurring thing, Pochettino might want to bring in a replacement for him.
As for Modric, the transfer will be a sweet journey back home. The Croatian burst onto the big stage after impressing with Croatia in the 2008 Euros and was snapped up by Tottenham Hotspur soon after. Daniel Levy’s move proved to be a masterstroke as Modric was the perfect midfielder, tailor-made for the English league.
His vision, quickness on the ball, passing range, midfield sense and finally his long ranger goals made him a midfield dynamite in England. He went on to become a top midfielder and was snapped up Real Madrid in a few years’ time. The Croatian went on to achieve even bigger things at Madrid and a return home after a long day at work will be a beautiful end to the story for Luka Modric.
