REPORTS: Chelsea To Launch New Offer For Modric

By on August 9, 2011

Chelsea are set to launch a third offer for Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric, according to reports.

The West London club have already failed with two offers for the Croatian midfielder, with Sky Sports suggesting Chelsea will improve on their last rejected offer of £27million.

Rumours had suggested that Chelsea would offer either Didier Drogba or Daniel Sturridge as a makeweight, but the offer is purely cash and thought to be around £30million plus.

Both chairman Daniel Levy and manager Harry Redknapp remain adamant their star midfielder will not be sold. After watching Modric in Saturday’s friendly win over Athletic Bilbao, when he made his first appearance at White Hart Lane since declaring he wants to leave, Jordan said:

“He is an exceptional professional.

“Whatever is going on in his mind, I can honestly say that it has not affected his approach to training.

“You can see today that he is in good condition.

“It (his performance) was typical of the player and the person that he is. He is a great lad. He is a good pro and a nice person.

“I think the players and the public appreciate him as a football player. But in the dressing room the players appreciate him as a person and a football player.”

Redknapp again reiterated his stance on Modric:

“We are not going to sell our best players, the likes of Modric and (Gareth) Bale. We’re looking to sell some fringe players but we have had no takers.”

    pls mr harry let modric fulfill his dream, he’s 25 yrs of age, he need trophy. And chairman levy shd cash in on him 2 generate fund 4 new faces, harry shd look 4 replacement rather than losing him 4 nothing. Its not modric fault, datz his wish which he signed. He’s a secret between him and levy which levy has denied and he s wrong.

    £30m is not enough to make Spurs think twice. The player may want to go but if Newcastle can get £35m for Carroll, Tottenham should be looking for £50m+ , which only a mad-man will pay. This story bores me so much and I dont know why I have even bothered responding.

    just forget about modric now and go for someone else and also dont sell daniel sturrige he is too much of a good player but i think we do need a playmaker but its not modric

    Cash a plus Drogba/Sturrige 4 Modric is absolute nonsense. Pls 4get Modric 4 Jose Mortinho or another player.

    Personally think sneijder would fit the bill better. Only stumbling block would be his wages but we kno he’d prefer London as thts where his wife would prefer. Go get Wesley!!!

    Chelsea should go to any lenght to get modric.

    modric should honor his bloody contract, chelsea should look elsewhere. mr. redknapp has built quite a team in the past 2yrs for the sake of some illusion of balance i think all football fans should condemn the snatching of spurs players
