Luka Modric is playing a massive game for Croatia against Spain today, in which his team will progress with a win or a 2-2 draw. They can potentially progress with a 1-1 or 0-0 draw if Italy are bad. There's a very good chance that Spain and Italy will both win their matches today, which will send Croatia out of the competition. At this point, we're going to have a lot to talk about.
With Spurs out of the Champions League, Modric is at the very least open to leaving. He might politely ask to leave again. He might go nuclear and refuse to show up for training. In any event, he's going to be linked to a lot of clubs, someone's probably going to make an offer, and Daniel Levy's probably going to play hardball.
Both Barcelona and Real Madrid have been linked to Modric, the latter of which was written about this morning by Bryan Ashlock. Why Barcelona would want Modric when they have Thiago Alcantara, his little brother Rafael, Jonathan dos Santos and Sergi Roberto all in the pipeline after Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas, I have literally no clue, but they're Barcelona so just run with it.
I have a question for you fine folks! Both Madrid and Barcelona have guys that they could potentially be looking to offload this summer, so they might want to offer them as a makeweight in a Modric transfer. And even if they don't, the papers will talk about a swap, so we might as well beat them to the punch and talk about a swap.
I'm not even going to introduce this poll further. I'm just going to let the comment chaos begin.
