    That team would win La Liga.
    It would be a tight battle for the PL.
    Man City have a team just as strong.

    What if you sub Modric for Eriksen, and play 2 of Alli/Son/Moura behind Kane? Lamela, and someone like Pulsic could compete and rotate. As would Dier/Wanyama. It could make a lot of sense if we play with 3 at the back next season. I hope we do with Toby staying as it would give us some defensive strength and consistency, that we lacked last season.

    I'd rather play the extra attacking player. No need for 3 CBs and Dier. Full backs can still get forward and Dier can drop in as per. That's the beauty of Modric also - provides the perfect balance to support Dier and build attacks.

    This is all dreamland obviously.


    Kane
    Son Dele Eriksen
    Dier - Modric
    Rose - Vertonghen - Sanchez - Trippier
    Lloris

    More i think about the more i think it'd be the perfect transfer for us this window - his inclusion in any proposed line up instantly takes it up a level and with Winks we have a player who can take the reigns in a season or two/can be rotated in for him regularly from the beginning.

    Knows the club
    Knows the league
    Won it all
    Low transfer fee
    Manageable wages
    Fit as a fiddle
    One of the best players in the world

    Unless he's after a final pay day in the States or China id hope he is a priority target.

    I don't get this. Why would Madrid be prepared to let him go and, in the event that they would be mad enough to do so, why would they let him go for a low transfer fee?

    I thought it was known/an accepted rumour that he is leaving Madrid this summer

    He'll be 33 in the coming season and Madrid aren't usually a club which try to squeeze the most out of outgoing transfers afaia

    can we please lock this three, or at least move it out of transfer rumours. It was never gonna happen, and now he's won Golden Ball it DEFINITELY ain't gonna happen.

    Let's move on to some more Grealish-tic targets please ;o)

    Inter Milan have made contact with Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric’s agents over a move, according to Sky in Italy.

    If he is leaving RM this summer I really hope we're at least exploring the possibility of signing him.

    I think Inter would be a good and logical move for him,same as would be Dembele.....

    I imagine the links are because they aren't signing Dembele.

    Fingers crossed, I don’t think we should be writing off Dembele just yet. Just manage him sensibly....

    Agreed, keep him and let him move on a free next year. With some of the youngsters coming through his experience will be invaluable to them. I thought he was great last season as well, particularly the 2nd half.
