Now I'm not sure whether this is a sudden realisation that Spurs really are his dream club, he cannot afford the fines or he has accepted that his one man strike isn't the way to win friends, influence people or get his move to Spain. Now I have never taken our No14 as being a militant individual, but equally I can't imagine him suddenly deciding that Spurs are where his future lies, though perhaps talking to a few friends in the team camp may well make him think twice, especially as AVB was so keen to buy him last summer.
The Cynic in me says that his return is all about the money and perhaps a threat of the club making him rot instead of looking to negotiate his sale, though in todays game, I wonder how possible or practical that would be. Is there however a possibility that he realises that the club wont sell him to another English club and that perhaps Real Madrid have decided to cool their interest in the knowledge that they can't or won't meet Tottenham's asking price, which leaves the player, where?
Perhaps PSG would again come in, but has he already snubbed them and several other potential suitors in putting all his eggs into the Madrid basket? Clearly any club will take varying degrees of exception to a player that dismisses them one minute in preference to someone else, only to change his mind, when his dream deal breaks down.
Of course our No14 is a very good player, but as some have already asked, is he really a £40m one? For me that is an inflated figure and if I were Madrid, I don't think I would be willing to pay such a high price for a player that might not even be an automatic pick for the first team. Are Spurs being unreasonable? Was the Chelsea bid last summer really that high? And finally what does he really bring to the table, that makes his such an indispensable player for the team, whoever that team may be?
It seems that Spurs fans are now either resigned to losing the player, no longer bothered or actually want rid of the rat faced ...... But is there a way back for the player if he now settles down and returns to the fold? I assume that the club would welcome a demotivated Luka to the team and he would still play a big part in our season, but for me, he has to show his commitment, whether that is signing a new deal or simply showing his loyalty in terms of physical or verbal application to the club and its new regime. How good would it be to hear him talk glowingly of the new manager and set up and effectively hold his hands up in claiming he was wrong to rock the boat?
Personally I still think the player will leave this summer, and perhaps AVB secretly wants rid and to replace him with Moutinho or another target, but equally is there a potential for player and club to sort out any differences and build on what looks to be a very bright future or is this all just a forced position, until a deal can finally be struck to everyones satisfaction???
