The transfer of Luka Modric rolls on but it is being widely reported that the Croatian will finally leave the club this week and sign for Real Madrid in a deal worth around £36m. The move, if it goes, through will probably see further rumours intensify regarding a replacement but could Spurs do this from within the current squad?
The one possible issue with doing that seems to be a lack of left sided players but that hasn’t stopped suggestions that AVB could solve the problem of an overcrowded midfield while saving the Chairman some money that he can use to buy another striker.
The main name in the frame seems to be Tom Huddlestone with his return to fitness scheduled to coincide perfectly with the start of the season.
Elsewhere, David Bentley has been given a clean slate by the new manager while even Giovani Dos Santos has hinted at retracting his comments and saving his Spurs career.
So what’s the verdict, should we spend, spend, spend on a Modric replacement of invest that money elsewhere in the side?
