Do not rule out Luka Modric returning to Spurs, says ex-Tottenham goalkeeper

Luka Modric could return to Tottenham if he leaves Real Madrid, according to former Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson.

Out of contract at the end of the season, Modric could bring to an end his 10-year stint with Madrid next summer if he decides against extending his contract.

The Croatian left Tottenham for the Spanish capital in 2012 and has won a number of trophies during his time in La Liga, including multiple Champions League honours.

And Robinson thinks there is a possibility Modric will fancy a return to north London.

“Do not not rule out a return to Spurs,” Robinson said in an interview with 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.”

Amazingly, it could be argued that even in the twilight of his career Modric is still too good for Spurs, especially if Antonio Conte’s men fail to qualify for the Champions League.

That said, if Modric does want to leave Madrid there is a chance he would favour Tottenham over other Premier League clubs, given his history with the Londoners.

But realistically it’s difficult to see a reunion happening, given his age and the likelihood of him staying in Spain.
