Real Madrid star to return to the Premier League at Stamford Bridge?
Luka Modric could return to the Premier League this summer with Chelsea ready to end his La Liga nightmare.
Former Tottenham midfielder Modric turned down the chance to join Chelsea in the summer despite having been tracked by the club for two years, instead making a £33million switch to Real Madrid.
But the 27-year-old has failed to settle in the Spanish capital, playing in only 19 of Real Madrid’s games and finding the net just once, and was voted as the worst La Liga signing in a recent vote by newspaper Marca.
Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea were put on alert over his potential availability last weekend and Stamford Bridge owner Roman Abramovich is ready to sign off a £25 million move for the Croatian international playmaker.

Chelsea is a state of rebuilding with Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole set to leave at the end of the season when their current contracts expire and moves for Atletico Madrid’s striker Rademel Falcao and Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini are expected in the summer.
The club missed out on the signing of Brazilian midfielder Taison on Friday when he opted to join Shaktar Donetsk instead, meaning the only new addition so far in the January transfer window has been Demba Ba from Newcastle.
