Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly contacted Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric to bring him back to north London.
The Croat played four seasons for the Lilywhites and became one of the league's most sought-after players. In 2012 he moved to Real Madrid, where he established himself as one of the best players in the world, winning four Champions League titles, a Golden World Cup ball and a Ballon d & # 39; Or.
At 35, Modric is still playing an incredibly high standard and would certainly have a lot to offer to potential applicants.
According to the Spanish football show El Chiringuito TV Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has contacted the experienced midfielder about a possible return to his previous club. The Portuguese previously worked with Modric after signing him for Real Madrid in 2012.
Modric's current contract expires in summer, so it may be available cheaply in January or free in summer. His addition would massively boost Spurs' outside hopes for the Premier League title.
However, it is believed that the player would be happy to stay at the Bernabeu, with Marca reporting in October that Modric would like to retire at Real Madrid. In addition, Los Blancos is apparently in talks with the 35-year-old about a new deal .
The finalist has appeared in 13 of Real Madrid's 14 league games so far, starting at 11. Given the overwhelming start to defending their title they are unlikely to let any of their star men go in the middle of the summer season.
