Luka Modric has been linked with a move to Camp Nou and despite being flattered by the interest shown, the player declares that he is happy and settled in England’s capital.

The diminutive playmaker says that the only time one will see him in Barcelona is if Harry Redknapp’s side draw the Primera Liga giants in the knock-out phase of the UEFA Champions League.

Here is Modric’s interview to SportskeNovosti:

“Me going to Barcelona?

Yes, I really hope that, but only as a Tottenham player in the next round of the Champions League.

Let’s be serious. All this is just so-called exclusive rumours, but I don’t know who really needs them.

Are they funny? Yes, they are very funny for me.

But of course, it is always nice to see your name being linked with such a club as Barcelona, but one has to keep their feet on the ground.

At the end of the day it’s just rumours without any foundation.

First it was Chelsea, then Inter Milan and also Manchester United, now it is Barcelona.

But the only truth is that I just recently signed a new contract with Tottenham.”

London is such a great place and at White Hart Lane I feel just like home.

I can make my football dreams come true with Tottenham and that is why all my thoughts and also my future is with this club.”

Guardiola desires to strenghten the squad with Fabregas, Modric, Bale and recently Pastore on his list.

So far, Barcelona’s manager has failed signing any of the abovementioned players with Arsenal refusing to sell Cesc and Spurs’ players stating their desire to stay at White Hart Lane. The only good new for Pep is that Palermo’s Javier Pastore seems willing to join Barcelona.

Meanwhile, Harry’s lads travel to Reebok stadium to face Bolton Wanderers.
