Chelsea Linked With Surprise Move For Croatian Midfield Star

Chelsea and Arsenal are among the frontrunners for Real Madrid creative playmaker Luka Modric this summer, according to reports.

Former Tottenham Hotspur star plays a vital role in helping Real Madrid to the cusp of a La Liga and Champions League double this term.

However, with the emergence of Casemiro under Zinedine Zidane, the Croatia International star could be shown an exit door this summer.

Previous reports claimed that Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have expressed interest in luring Croatia’s No.10 at Alianz Arena.

However, Spanish media outlet Diario Gol claim that the Chelsea and Arsenal are determined to bring him back to the English football.

Real Madrid chief Florentino Perez is supposedly open to selling him this summer to make space for big money signings.

Croatia International midfielder has shown signs of warning this term and the Los Blancos could now opt to sell him when the transfer window re-opens.

Both London clubs Arsenal and Chelsea would offer him the regular football for the 31-year-old playmaker.

And that could see the Croatian playmaker making a return to the English top tier where he has made himself as one of the best midfielders in the World.

This term Real Madrid star has made 10 appearances in the Champions League and featured 22-times in La Liga.
