Newcastle United are interested in bringing Luka Modric back to the Premier League this summer.
As per Todofichajes, the Magpies are already in talks with the player’s agent regarding a move.
The 34-year-old has one year left on his contract and it will be interesting to see if Newcastle manage to lure him to St James Park.
Modric has played in the Premier League before with Tottenham and he should be able to make an immediate impact if he joins Newcastle. Also, he has plenty experience under his belt and he will be able to adapt quickly.
Newcastle are likely to have a lot to spend this summer once their takeover is complete and they have been linked with quite a few stars so far.
The likes of Cavani have been linked with a move to SJP as well.
It will be interesting to see if they can convince Modric to leave Real Madrid for Newcastle this summer.
Although the Croatian has nothing left to prove in Spain, he could still be an asset for Los Blancos.
In theory, he would be a tremendous addition for Newcastle. He would improve them immensely in the short-term.
However, Newcastle must look to invest in younger players and build towards the future.
Modric is on the decline and he will only continue to regress. Signing him now would only make sense if it is a short-term deal.
It will be interesting to see how the saga unfolds in the next few weeks now.
