Former Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric could be set for a return to White Hart Lane as part of the deal to send Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, Darren Lewis of The Mirror has reported.
The Wales international is the subject of an £85 million offer from the Bernabeu club, as Sky Sports reported, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will also ask for Modric on top of the world-record fee, according to Lewis' article.
The Croatia international left the North London club for Real a year ago in a £33 million move, but he failed to make an impact on the first team under Jose Mourinho.
According to Lewis, Real left-back Fabio Coentrao and winger Angel Di Maria have been offered before in the Bale deal, but Modric is of greater interest to Spurs.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail has reported that Tottenham will turn their attention to Liverpool striker Luis Suarez if Bale leaves White Hart Lane. Any move for the Uruguay international would put Spurs on a collision course with local rivals Arsenal, who have already bid for the forward this summer, as John Cross of The Mirror reported.
