Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric dismisses suggestions that he spend a second spell at Tottenham Hotspur.

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has claimed that he is "too old" to ever return to Tottenham Hotspur.

The 35-year-old was linked with a second spell in North London during the summer transfer window at a time when Los Blancos were looking to reduce their wage bill.

While the Croatia international has remained at the Bernabeu, speculation persists regarding his future due to his contract expiring in the summer.

Although the veteran has indicated that he wishes to prolong his career, another spell at the Premier League outfit has been ruled out.

Speaking to FourFourTwo, Modric said: "I'm too old to go back to Tottenham. I still have a year left in Madrid and then we'll see what happens.

"I feel good and I want to continue playing football for a few more years. I am focused on Madrid and the things we can achieve this season.

"Afterwards I will sit down to talk to the management, and we will look for a suitable solution for everyone.

"I have forged a good relationship with all the people of the club and no matter what happens there will be no problem."

Modric starred for Spurs between 2008 and 2012 before earning a £33m switch to La Liga.
