Tottenham fans rave about Luka Modric ‘one last dance’ after his message from Spurs
Tottenham Hotspur fans are hoping Luka Modric’s recent Instagram comment hints that he will be returning to North London soon.
The Croatian midfielder spent four years with Spurs, making 127 Premier League appearances for the club before earning £30million at Real Madrid. But despite leaving Tottenham 10 years ago, the club still seem to be fondly remembered by Modric.
After Antonio Conte’s side revealed they kicked off their summer with the acquisition of Ivan Perisic on a free transfer, Modric commented on the post. The 36-year-old wrote: ‘COYS’ – Come On You Spurs – which has given supporters a glimmer of hope that a comeback is on the cards.
The photo of the comment was later posted to Twitter, with many commenting that it could indicate Modric will return to Tottenham given his contract expires in the summer – although it is well reported he is likely to sign an extension with Los Blancos. One wrote: “You still love us Luka. Come on man, one last dance.
Another said: “I have missed Luka for so long. He was so underrated and now he finally gets the recognition he so deserves. COYS.
It was also felt that before Modric hangs up his boots he should return to Tottenham, commenting: “Modric needs to finish his career at Hotspur Way. There’s no two ways to do it!”
Spurs are expected to be busy this summer, with Conte keen to add top talent to his ranks and end his team’s trophy drought. Cristian Romero, Dujan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentacur have all arrived this season and made a difference in the market, and Conte hopes that alone shows why he should be able to spend big.
The former Chelsea boss reportedly wanted to improve his winger options, and he’s halfway there after signing Perisic. The 33-year-old left Inter Milan at the end of his contract and will bring a lot of quality and skill to the team.
But Conte is also keen to sign a right-back this summer, Middlesbrough’s Djed Spence – who excelled on loan at Nottingham Forest – has reportedly been tipped to move to north London. Arsenal are also among those interested in the young England prospect, while Forest will also want Spence’s loan to be permanent.
