It has been rumored for the past few weeks, but today it just got a bit more serious. Tottenham has been after Croatian ‘iron horse’ defender Vedran Ćorluka as well as Villareal’s David Villa and Zenit’s Andrei Arshavin, which would be the largest transfer window signings ever in the Premiership if it happened.
The ‘super signing’ will not happen but Ćorluka might still end up teammates with his already good friend, Luka Modrić, at Tottenham. Ćorluka has been playing with his current club, Manchester City, since the beginning of the 2007 season. He was seen at the Tottenham hotel this week which makes the signing that much more probable.
Who knows what was said within those hotel walls, but it could bring a 3rd Croatian to the city of London as soon as next week. Stay tuned as the Premiership kicks off on August 16th.
