Tottenham Hotspur appeared to be reuniting the band less than a month ago, although Daniel Levy should reconsider after this weekend.
Having sensationally brought Gareth Bale to the club the loan In the summer, North Londoners were linked to a raid by compatriot Luka Modric, who also swapped the N17 for the Spanish capital several years ago.
It cost Los Galacticos in the region of £ 30 million in 2012, according to the BBC.
And according to journalist Eduardo Inda about El Chiringuito TV Three weeks ago, José Mourinho had called the Croatian midfielder in an attempt to take him to Spurs when he enters the final. six months of your current contract.
Do you want Luka Modric to return to Spurs?
Well, after Madrid’s no-show against Osasuna in La Liga on Saturday, they might want to think again.
The 35-year-old showed signs of his advanced age, lasted only 75 minutes before being hooked by Zinedine Zidane, and it was actually the right decision as Modric was completely disappointing.

Former first division forward Dean Windass told Football FanCast it would be an “incredible” move. Still, it seems like a complete waste of time if he can’t destroy a team of the quality of Los Rojillos; after all, they are seconds from the bottom.
Zidane has continued to trust the veteran number 10, but since 17 appearances, is averaging a little over 75 minutes per game, so there are clearly doubts about his ability to play the full length of games.
The intensity of the Premier League is way above La Liga, so Levy will have to think twice before bringing him back, even if it leaves Mourinho furious; we have also seen that Bale’s experiment has not yet begun.
