Spurs make ‘good offer’ to sign £180,000-a-week star with heavy clause

Based on a report by Spanish outlet Diario Gol, Tottenham have submitted what has been deemed as a ‘good offer’ for ex-player Luka Modric.

The Croatia international, along with Gareth Bale, is another former Spurs player who has been strongly linked with a return to England this summer.

Modric, who left White Hart Lane in 2012, has developed into one of the best midfielders in the world, helping Real Madrid secure four Champions League titles in the past five years.

Diario Gol’s report claims that Spurs have submitted an audacious bid to sign the playmaker but it remains in doubt whether a deal will actually be sealed due to the player’s astronomical release clause.

Upon signing his most recent contract at Real Madrid, the Spanish giants decided to insert a staggering £435m release clause into his deal to potentially drive away any suitors in the future.

Modric, an earner of £180,000-a-week wage at Madrid, would be a brilliant addition to Tottenham’s midfield.
