8 Reasons the End of the Luka Modric Transfer Saga Will Be a Positive for Spurs

Although it’s been almost two weeks since Luka Modric completed his move to Real Madrid, the whole affair still has a sense of surrealism after such a drawn-out transfer.

The Croatian midfielder was being linked with a move away from White Hart Lane for well over a year before he finally departed, and for good reason.

Last season, Modric created the second-highest number of goal-scoring opportunities in the English top flight, beaten only by Euro 2012 and eventual Premier Lague winner David Silva (via WhoScored.com).

Of course, one would love to keep that kind of quality amongst one’s ranks, but the sale has a multitude of checks in the “plus column,” for which Tottenham can be pleased.

Modric has only played two matches for the Spanish League champions, but his former side have no need to linger in his wake and have plenty of reason to swiftly move on.
