    Or Utd.

    They'd be all over him like a fat kid on a cup cake.

    Desperate for a player like him of which there aren't many around.

    The problem with buying young players, and especially young players who haven't won anything, is that when it comes to crunch time (going away to Chelsea needing a win for titles etc) they can come up short as they don't have the experience to play the game. They also tend to lack that belief of actually doing it, well Bale and Modric will have no qualms here as they've helped win the biggest games. That's what this team needs.

    Really hope the other player from Ajax is Dolberg.

    Very strange re modric. He's pretty much the biggest crowd favourite at the Bernabeu. There'd be huge uproar if they even got close to selling him.

    Well, we've just got Wanyama back in Jan - which is as good as a new signing.:)

    Only its not like that at all, because its not a relationship and about sentimental stuff but rather a very simple question. Would these players improve us?

    Luka Modric is still in the top 3 CMs in the world (Thiago and Kroos). The idea of Real letting him go is beyond bonkers.

    Who would be unhappy with Modric? I'd much rather have Modric back for a few seasons to tutour Winks than get Bale - assuming we can only afford one.

    I know not the most exciting part of the news but must be an important name.

    Would love Modric back. He has spoken glowingly about us since Poch joined.

    I must've missed that, what has he said?

    Another positive aspect of signing Modric/Bale, players who may be looking to leave may decide not to as they believe it's the calibre of player that can help the team win stuff. I'm not into this transfer frenzy like your United and Chelsea fans are but I do believe we need a 'winner' these two are 'winners'

    RM are bonkers. They don’t do things by logic. To sell Ozil and others is a case in point. No matter what we think, if offered 40 million plus for 32 year old Modric, they would accept it.

    Let’s hope we’re not stupid enough to do that then

    How it's football not about sentimental stuff ahah?

    Why does it matter that we left WHL? Just a stadium who cares

    Actually why support Tottenham? It's only sentimentality, I'm just gonna start supporting city because football is not about emotion or feeling at all it's just about winning at any cost

    I said the same earlier. Classy looking player. Agile, quick thinking and can finish

    Obviously football is sentimental as a whole, but signing players really shouldn't be. Most players who play for Tottenham never loved the club, they are a commodity if a player can improve us we should sign them as simple as that really.

    Have to say. I love the Modders news. He’s a fucking wizard. And I also like the little border around the ITK. Great move SC!!

    the 'name' must be pulisic. fits in with earlier titbits, plus the nfl/us/nike(?) angle.

    just love hercules' updates, simply the idea of having modric back for a season or two is other worldly. adding him and pulisic to our current midfield would be insanely good.......(y)

    He said Spurs are the best team in the world he wished he'd never left us and he truly loves the chicken badge, if I remember correctly.

    Modric would bring unquestionable quality, vast experience and the know how of winning the games biggest prizes, all things our young squad are crying out for.
