Tottenham Hotspur midfielder possible destinations
Luka Modric, the 25-year-old Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, is currently considering making a move away from White Hart Lane.
Recent reports reveal that English Premier League giants Manchester United and Chelsea are eyeing the midfielder as a potential summer buy.
Both sides have been keeping an eye on the Croatian international and are prepared to bid for him in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Both sides have realized this is a good time to make a move for Modric, with his side failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season.
Tottenham Hotspur finished fifth place on the English Premier League table, which means they lose out on the European competition next campaign.
The Spurs, under manager Harry Redknapp, had an amazing start to the season. They went on to perform well in both the Premier League and the Champions League.
However, they suffered a bout of poor form towards the end of the season because of which they failed to recreate last season’s top four finish.
Despite being a regular in the current squad, Modric earns £45,000-a-week as compared to the £65,000-a-week 30-year-old out of favour striker makes.
Keane has made just 10 appearances this season, finding the back of the net just once. Modric on the other hand has made 42 appearances in all competitions and has scored 4 goals.
A move to either Old Trafford or Stamford Bridge will guarantee the international at least £100,000-a-week, in addition to Champions League football.
According to recent reports the Tottenham Hotspur Fan's Player of the Year is frustrated at White Hart Lane and is considering a move away.
A source close to the player revealed:
“Luka has enjoyed his time at Spurs but he has had a taste of Champions League football and he wants more of it.
There are no guarantees Tottenham will qualify on a regular basis and he would listen to offers from any club that can offer those guarantees.”
Modric arrived at Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2008 for a record fee of £16.5 million from Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb.
Modric has maintained a consistent form in his three seasons at the London club, making 44 and 32 appearances and scoring 5 and 3 goals in his first two seasons respectively.
The diverse midfielder, who has previously been deployed as an attacking midfielder and a holding midfielder, has been described as one of the best midfielders in the English Premier League.
Despite being able to handle both positions, Modric functions best as a left-sided midfielder or as a central attacking midfielder.
The Red Devils and the Blues are both looking to reinforce their squads with quality players and Modric is an obvious choice.
Modric would make an excellent addition to either side, especially since both Premier League sides are on the verge of losing some key players in the summer.
