It may be due to the lull in news that always surrounds international week but reports are rife that Luka Modric is set to agree a new deal at Spurs very shortly. In fact, if you believe everything you read, the suggestion is that Luka is about to become Tottenham’s first £100k a week player.
According to the Evening Standard, the six figure sum will only be paid if Spurs reach the top four at the end of the season but even if they fall short, Modric will still become the club’s most highly paid player by some margin.
The report continues to suggest that the player has bought a new house in Hertfordshire and is much happier and more settled in training than he was at the start of the season.
Overall, this is the sort of sum that Luka could comfortably pick up at another side but is it sustainable as far as Spurs are concerned? The likes of Gareth Bale and Sandro could be next so is this the right move from the club’s point of view?
