Redknapp On Modric – “The Chelsea Deal Is Dead”

Luka Modric

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has insisted that midfielder Luka Modric will remain at White Hart Lane and a move to Chelsea is now “dead”. 

Chelsea remain keen on Modric and Andre Villas-Boas hinted yesterday that the Blues may yet come back in for the Spurs ace, having failed to land the  Croatian schemer in the summer.

However Redknapp has once again denied that the 26-year-old could be on his way out of White Hart Lane, claiming he will remain at Tottenham no matter what Chelsea offer:

“I don’t expect Luka to want to go anywhere,” Redknapp said. “I think the Chelsea deal is dead.

“He’s happy here. I don’t know where he’s at with his contract talks with the chairman but I’m sure they’ll get something done.

“I don’t see there being a problem with Luka. No matter what Chelsea offer, he isn’t going. Not a chance.”

    When are you numpties going to get it into your thick skulls that the Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy holds the upper hand and will not sell Luka Modric to Chelsea or any other club in the EPL under any circumsrtances. I suspect that the idiots in certain press centres and various blogs are not only opposed to the re-emergence of THFC but are actually jealous of their rapid rise to prominance and fear the potential threat that they pose. It is really frightening some of you isnt it? This is all the more remarkable because they havent bought their success unlike Chelsea which is well documented. Daniel Levy has learnt his lesson well after the Berbatov historionics. With Berbatov, he really didnt have a leg to stand on purely because Berbatov had very little time remaining on his contract but Levy made the very best of that situation which is also well documented. Dont be fooled by the Berbatov episode. May I remind you that Spurs do not need the money, they are a very rich club in their own right not a jumped up Jonny come lately like Chelsea. The sensible among you will already know this. As for the so called £40M offer for Modric last year, this is laughable. You forgot to mention that the actual offer was for £28M and to bump up the offer included Benayoun and Alex therefore bringing the overall package to an estimated £40M in the mind of the press. That was thrown out the window out of hand.
    The future for Spurs is very bright, brand new training facililities due to be opened shortly, a brand spanking new state of the art 60,000 seater stadium in the pipe. You’re right to fear Spurs, so keep on writing your nonsense, it will be treated with the same contempt it deserves.
