REPORTS: Modirc In Talks Over New Spurs Deal

By on September 24, 2011

Luka Modric is in talks over a new improved deal at Tottenham which is thought to be in the region of £80,000 a week.

The midfielder was subject to numerous bids from Premiership rivals Chelsea in the summer, with the latest offer thought to be worth around £40million. Despite Chelsea’s advances and the player himself admitting he wanted to join the Blues, chairman Daniel Levy insisted the Croatian was not for sale.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp believes the playmaker was badly advised during the summer and has urged Levy to offer a new deal as soon as possible.

“If he is worth £40 million then life tells you that you have to be paid accordingly,” Redknapp said earlier this week.

“You have to look after the boy and I am sure we will do that. Hopefully, his future is here.

“This is a big club, a good club, I am sure the chairman will sit down and talk to him. We have got to convince him that his future is here and make it right for the boy, which is only fair and I am sure he will.”

Despite having 4 years remaining on his current deal the 25-year old is set for a bumper pay raise, with several reports suggesting talks are underway on the new deal.

    Mohammed.. Please make your scriblings a little more ledgable.As for top four, the way Chelsea is playing they are looking very average at the moment, certainly not as good as last year!

    Why raise his salary when he’s planning on leaving in the summer. Sounds like a waste of money.

    as a good as last year? Chelsea looked average last year, fortunately for us everyone else was dreadful. This year Chelsea are starting to look amazing. Be good if he came but we dont desperately need him.

    Give him his pay rise, the lad really does deserve it. If he is feeling a little bit hard done by or not appreciated by the club then this will make him feel better. Hopefully keep him here fo a few more seasons until a big clubs like Real or Barca come knocking for him. I hope he does stay though, he is the best spurs have had since Hoddle.
