Manchester City fans discuss reports they are competing with Tottenham, Newcastle for Real Madrid superstar

Luka Modric has emerged as a target for Manchester City, Newcastle United and Tottenham – and City fans have responded to the reported news.

Modric, 36, is out of contract at the end of the season. The chances of Madrid extending that deal look unlikely, despite still crucial to Madrid.

The ex-Tottenham man surpassed 400 appearances for Madrid earlier this season, and has four assists in the 14 outings he has clocked up.

Super Deporte deliver an update on his future. They say that Manchester City, Newcastle and former side Tottenham are all interested in Modric.

But they also state that Modric will not entertain a return to Tottenham, nor will he join Newcastle. But he could consider a move for Manchester City.

It is believed he wants a two-year deal, and City’s connections with New York City would allow him to then move to the MLS club afterwards.

What are Manchester City fans saying about the race for Modric?

Modric is still an incredible player. He still has that footballing class that gives him the ability to change games, and is still as fit as he was at 28.

Can he hack the intensity of the Premier League? He’s a hard-working midfielder, and if he was to suit any side – it would be Manchester City.

Would he start? Perhaps not, but he would certainly be an excellent rotational option. His experience would work wonders with the players.

Manchester City fans have reacted on Twitter to the reports that Modric could swap the Bernabeu for the Etihad, and many are excited.
