Talk Sport are today reporting that Real Madrid are turning their attention to re-signing Wesley Sneijder as a move for Luka Modric looks to have hit a stumbling block.
Real are apparently not prepared to pay up the £40 million that Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy is demanding for the Croatian playmaker.
Now, they want to bring a player with similar attributes to the Bernabeu as they look to retain their La Liga title.
The Dutchman joined Inter Milan from Real in 2009 and it was the Spanish side’s current boss Jose Mourinho who brought him to the San Siro.
Sneijder then put in some outstanding performances under the Portuguese boss, helping them to Serie A and Champions League success in 2010.
Now it seems as though Mourinho is keen to link up with the 28-year-old yet again.
After a poor season for Inter which saw them finish in sixth position in the Italian top flight, Sneijder will know that there will be no European football for them this season.
In his best years as a player, the Holland international will surly want to be playing in Europe’s elite club competition.
It looks as though Modric is still the big target for Mourinho’s side but if it does fall through – they may come knocking on Inter’s door.
