Legend Tells Club – Go Buy Modric In January

By on November 28, 2011

Chelsea legend Ron ‘Chopper’ Harris has backed his former club to rekindle their interest in Tottenham’s Luka Modric this January.

Modric was subject to intense speculation in the summer with both Chelsea and Man Utd making enquiries for the Croatian schemer. It was Chelsea who pushed hardest to land the midfielder, submitting several bids including a £40m offer on transfer deadline day.

However, Tottenham stood firm and refused to do business and Modric remained at White Hart Lane. Its thought the Blues will come back in for the 26-year-old during the January transfer window, and Harris feels this would be a wise move for Chelsea if they can persuade Tottenham to sell:

“Modric is a very gifted player. Chelsea need impetus and Modric can provide that,” Harris, who played 795 times for the Blues, told the Daily Star Sunday.

“It’s just a question of whether or not Spurs can keep hold of him. They know Chelsea will break the bank to get him and can probably double his wages.”

    Dear Chopper. If Levy wouldn`t sell for 40mil pre season, It`s very unlikely Levy will sell him come January, especially if Tottenham sit where they are now come the end of Christmas, above Chelski. The times they are a changing! COYS!

    What Chooper forgot was Modric never put in a transfer request! So he never tried everything!

    Tottenham will never sell any player to Chelsea due to the way they do their business in public to unsettle the player before.

    It’s meltdown at the bridge and Modric must be thinking “Thank God I did not go there”! As Bale said this week when Barca were trying the same trick “Spurs are on the up and going places”.

    I don’t Spurs will win the league but they have a great chance of being in the top 3. Plus the others are in decline. If Spurs don’t win the league I hope City do. When Chelsea brought the league title a few years ago Roman did not care. Now City have out priced Chelsea he don’t luck it.

    Top 6: 1/2 – City/Utd, 3 Spurs, 4 Liverpool, 5 Chelsea & 6 Arsenil (7 seasons of winning nothing)

    If Modric and Bale are sold at the end of the season they will move abroad not to another top 6 team!

      You’re not the top team in London yet but at the end of the season you might be. You have to keep Adebayor though.

      I understand it perfectly. For the price we’d have to pay (around £60million, maybe more) we could fix the bigger problems in our team like a winger anc centre-back. Spurs were right to hold onto him. Chelea need to look elsewhere because if they don’t find someone fast they will finish outside the top 4.

    Why?
    He’d cost around £60 million and we need a centre-back (e.g. Gary Cahil- £15-20mil) and a winger (e.g. Hazard/Gotze-£30mil+). We have a playmaker in Mata but he has to play on the wing because Malouda, Anelka etc are crap.
