Put on your fantasy chairman hats for a minute and consider the following:
Which is better for Tottenham Hotspur moving forward?
Moving Luka Modric along in this transfer window and making up for some of the missing Champions League revenue to find a way into the Champions League or keeping Luka Modric and giving it one more go in hopes of securing Champions League football?
Obviously, the goal is simple: Tottenham want Champions League football.
The question is which is the better way of obtaining that goal?
Even if he doesn't have a sensational tournament, he could still bring in upwards of €40 million.
But, is that amount of money worth giving up the midfield maestro? Is there a combination of players that can replace the little midfield general?
I'll begin the proceedings.
If you could guarantee that Tottenham would acquire Jan Vertonghen, a midfielder such as Yohan Cabaye—or a player of that ilk—and a forward such as Loic Remy and still have some cash left over, I might be tempted to take the offer.
If, however, you couldn't land at least three exceptional players for Modric, then I'd keep the Croatian and see what I could find to help bolster the wings, the center of defense and find a target man up front on the cheap.
Now, let's hear what you have to say on the matter.
Answer the poll and have your say on whether Spurs should:
*Sell Luka Modric
- What price would you ask for?
- Who would you get for the money?
*Keep Luka Modric
- Who would you look to buy?
- What could help convince him it's the right decision?
