Harry Redknapp has urged former club Tottenham to make a move now for Luka Modric as they prepare to wrap up Gareth Bale’s sensational return to the club.
Bale is expected to return to North London soon on the basis of a loan agreement of more than £ 13 million for the entire season.
But Redknapp believes his former club should go one step further and bring another ex-player back to the club, insisting that Luka Modric can add another dimension to Jose Mourinho’s midfield.

The move would see Modric reunite with Gareth Bale (L), who is about to finalize a loan to Spurs.
Redknapp said on Stats Perform News, “I was going to see if I could get Luka Modric back. Take the two, Bale and Modric.
That would be a great coup. Luka is still a fantastic player. That would be great.
‘I still feel like they need someone out there; they have the attackers, but they need someone to provide the bullets.
‘That’s where someone like Luka Modric can play killer passes, in a big movement at the front. They miss such a player. ‘
Modric played for Spurs between 2008 and 2012, establishing himself as one of the best midfielders in the world before moving to Bernabeu.
Real signed him for around £ 30 million and he’s won the Champions League four times and LaLiga twice.
He will not have a contract next summer and it remains to be seen how willing the Spanish giants will be to offer him new terms, given that Modric has just turned 35.
But last season he played 40 times for Zinedine Zidane, indicating that he is still a big part of his plans and that it would take a huge fee to lure him back to Spurs.

Bale was filmed arriving at Real Madrid’s training ground early Thursday morning as he said goodbye to teammates before completing his move to Spurs.
Sportsmail announced on Thursday that Bale had taken out a season interest rate to Tottenham.
He will undergo medical tests in Madrid on Friday before flying to London in the next 24 hours to validate the move. On Thursday, a few minor formalities were completed and all that remains is for Bale to arrive and sign.
Boss Jose Mourinho declined to be drawn for the Bale deal after Thursday night’s Europa League win against Lokomotiv Plovdiv in Bulgaria.
“I can’t comment,” he said. ‘I don’t comment on anything I don’t know. For me, at the moment, until Gareth Bale is a Tottenham player, I still think and respect the fact that he is a Real Madrid player. I am not going to comment on a Real Madrid player. ‘
Tottenham Hotspur have also sealed a £ 27m blow to Real Madrid left back Sergio Reguilon. He completed his medical treatment on Thursday, which could open the door for Ryan Sessegnon to leave on loan.
