    Why would RM sell Modric when he is their best midfielder even today ?
    I cannot see Modric or Bale happening.

    If it’s a case of giving them first option on Dele and Kane, I say go for it. I’d much rather sell players to Madrid than to our rivals like City when the time comes.

    I wouldn't give Madrid the steam off my piss. They can do one.

    I agree - as long as it doesn't turn their head. For example, I can't see Kane wanting to leave at all. However, knowing that Real Madrid are actively waiting for him could change his mind as it becomes more than just paper talk then.

    Just read Hercs info and the sponsorship stuff is interesting but I have just got a pang of dread about the stadium name...I really hope we don't end up with some shite sounding stadium name. Would be typical Spurs to build a big beautiful stadium then name it the Krappa bowl sponsored by Holsten.

    The concept of first option is useless at this level of players. They want the player.

    And even if it were only a first option, I still wouldn't do it. It's the first step in accepting a sale.
    Besides Bale is perma crocked, and Modric is 32. Still a great player, but not worth compromising Kane's future at the club.

    Really love hearing that we want to bring in a big name signing to accompany NWHL, but I think Bale and Modric really miss the mark in regards to the direction of this club and its transfer policy. I actually am pretty against their return unless it was a free transfer. Not only would it be bringing in older players that would be pricey, short-term investments (never mind Bale can't play a full season anymore), but we would essentially be pushing our young stars out the door and telling our young talent that we aren't willing to give them a chance anymore. This club is ascending to a peak in its history because of purchases like Bale and Modric, and because of them they're reaching a point where they don't have to sell those kind of players that they develop into superstars. Bale and Modric certainly brought us some exciting times, but is attempting to re-live that worth pushing Alli, Kane, Eriksen out of the spotlight and potentially out of the club? For me that's a clear no.

    I think I would prefer spending that kind of money on a young player that's capable of supplementing the young, up-and-coming attitude in the squad. Pulisic immediately comes to mind, but I'm not as high on him as my fellow Americans. But someone of that caliber and career arc.

    I can see your point, but at the same time, who better to tutor Winks than Modric? Edwards and Sess (maybe) with Bale too.

    I'd definitely have Bale back - good back-up for Davies at left back if Rose is going to be out for a while again.

    We don't buy world class players, we make them.

    And we made Bale and Modric, so fail to see relevance.

    Herc’s info all sounds very positive.

    I can’t wait to see the ridiculous deal Levy manages to get us for the naming rights. The fact that he’s held out for this long suggests it’s going to be something special.

    If we qualify for the CL again, it could be a very interesting summer transfer wise.

    Surely buying older players with experience is better that buying young players if we care about the young talent we are developing in house. Not only will they only be realistically about for a few seasons but they also can help develop young players with their experience. I think if we were to sign both it would be taken well by most players, it would be a statement of intent.

    Yes we made them. We didn't buy them in their prime.

    We haven't bought a super star (in their prime) since lineker.

    Nothing wrong with that. We are what we are.
